The DREAM Program and all of its particpants mourn the passing of Lowell Richards, Dartmouth Alumnus and Friend of DREAM. Our sincerest regrets to the family of this wonderful man and big dreamer.
“May the odds be ever in your favor.” And Ninja. The game Ninja, not the historical warriors. Why are these things being mentioned together? They were all part of DREAM Philly’s latest matching ceremony! Last Friday, the Cecil B.

We can!! And we know that all of the teens who attended our annual fall Teen Futures Retreat are going to be incredibly successful! Two dozen teens, staff, and mentors gathered together at a retreat space in Richmond, VT to discuss their past, present, and future. One activity, Life Timeline, allowed teens to map out where they've been, where they are, and where they're going. Another discussion about challenges facing youth today allowed teens to be candid about how they feel they're treated by adults: teachers, police officers, and more.
On a drizzly fall day, supporters and friends of Camp DREAM gathered in Fletcher, VT to celebrate 10 years of joy, laughter, and success. Founded in 2004, Camp has provided positive, life-changing experiences to hundreds of youth and college students throughout the state of Vermont. Both winter and summer experiences are formative in allowing participants to challenge comfort zones, engage in rewarding experiences, and make new friends from new places.
