In the fall of 2012, we sponsored 70 at-risk youth from 99th Street Elementary School in Watts. These students (“Dreamers”) captured our hearts with their warm, inquisitive, and captivating personalities. They were in third grade when “I Have a Dream” Foundation – Los Angeles (IHADLA) sponsored them. They are now in eigth grade!
They are working hard during the after-school program, participating in their communities, serving others through volunteer and service days, and taking college field trips to USC and UCLA, among other campuses.
We know how important it is for our Dreamers to visit new environments and have new experiences, especially since these Dreamers come from particularly extraordinary circumstances.
IHADLA looks forward to the next six-plus years with our Watts Dreamers from Program 18.
