Summer Enrichment Coordinators are members of DREAM’s SummerCorps and are AmeriCorps members. Our SummerCorps combats the “summer developmental slide” (which accounts for over half of the achievement gap for children in poverty).
DREAM is committed to serving our youth with culturally appropriate programming. We seek members who contribute to the diversity and excellence of The DREAM Program and who foster an inclusive environment.
