Dare 2 Dream Leaders Inc is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization empowering at risk middle school and high school youth by providing education, skills and resources to help build them into future dynamic leaders.
We serve our youth HOLISTICALLY. We understand that there is no one way, or thing you can do or teach a student that will help them become well rounded individuals. Therefore, we’ve come up with our five pillars of success – to meet the needs of the youth – namely Entrepreneurship, Financial Literacy, Career Etiquette, Creative Arts and Community Service.
