Description: DREAMS (Desire, Readiness, Empowerment, Action and Mastery for Success) is a success intervention program for middle school children designed to lead them toward their academic success, professional flourishment and ultimately their holistic success in life. The scientific researches found the project is very effective in improving the participants’ self-confidence, self-esteem and their interpersonal skills. The project has been successfully implemented in several communities and school districts since 2012. This curriculum-based three year personal, social and leadership skills development program is implemented through the summer camps and quarterly one day follow up programs throughout the year to transmit the success stories and values of those from the local community to our next generations.
