Getting Things Done in Boulder County

The "I Have A Dream"/AmeriCorps partnership is a collaboration between "I Have A Dream," Notre Dame AmeriCorps (NDA), and the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).

NDA and CNCS provides funding and program support that enables "I Have A Dream" to recruit AmeriCorps members to serve communities and youth. Members further our ability to deliver services in literacy and/or transitions to the youth in our program (Dreamer Scholars) and their families. More information on AmeriCorps is available at www.americorps.gov; more information on Notre Dame AmeriCorps is here.

Currently, there are ten active "I Have A Dream" classes serving over 600 Dreamer Scholars in Boulder County (Boulder, Lafayette, and Longmont) and Weld County (Frederick). Three of the after-school and summer programs are located in low-income public housing sites and seven are school-based at local elementary, middle, and high schools.
