WELCOME FROM NATIONAL
“I Have A Dream” Foundation is excited to welcome you to register for the 18th Annual Dream University Prep (Dream UP) in Washington, DC. From July 9 through 13, 2019, we will be on the campus of Howard University for 4 days of college life experiences, civic engagement activities, open discussion forums, and – of course – getting to know one another. Most importantly, these experiences will prepare you to achieve your dreams as you move through school and life!
This year, our country has been steadily divided through actions and speech that hurt others. Despite this, there is a wave of hope in youth activism, Congress, and the world to counteract this behavior. You are our future and we are following your lead for a better tomorrow.
At Dream UP, we will have opportunities to discuss the ways in which youth are creating and leading our most passionate movements today – as they have in the past. We will also have workshops aimed at ensuring you continue to succeed in school, and have the confidence and tools necessary to chart your path for the betterment of yourself, your community, and eventually – the world.
Some highlights from 2018 Dream UP include:
College Classes – Professors teach Biology, Theater, and Sociology
Hall Pass – Making of an Activist
Civic Engagement – Taking Action for a Better World
Town Hall – Gun Violence
We are very excited for what is to come and look forward to seeing you in DC and bringing you one step closer to college!
