The Dream Academy
Our DREAM is to open the doors to our very own Chattanooga Dream Academy; a facility that we envision will serve to help inner-city kids succeed in life by providing a place for academic assistance, character development and spiritual enrichment through the students’ most formative years.
This facility will offer students tutoring, computer-based literacy training, faith-based instruction, life-skills and character building lessons, mentoring relationships, performing arts, field trips, and recreation.
The majority of juvenile crimes are committed between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. During the same hours, youth are victims of crime more than any other time during the day.
Unsupervised youth are more likely to: use alcohol, drugs and tobacco; receive poor grades, skip school or drop out of school; engage in risky sexual activity; carry and use weapons. But we CAN make a difference!
The Chattanooga Dream Academy will help turn the cycle of delinquency in our city by giving inner-city students a place to discover the power of a real DREAM, the inspiration to believe in that dream, and the mentoring relationships to pursue that dream.
