Empowering Vulnerable Young People with LifeSkills



Empowering over 4,000 young people every year from poor socioeconomic backgrounds with critical life skills through sustainable engagement in experiential after school programmes using sports, creative arts, mentoring and outdoor camps.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

We at Dream A Dream believes education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. It's crucial for young people to be equipped with literacy, numeric skills and life skills. It is these skills and abilities, inculcated in childhood, that make us successful as adults. They help people build a meaningful life for themselves and become productive members of the society. Young people from vulnerable backgrounds don't get opportunities for developing Life Skills.

How will this project solve this problem?

Dream A Dream's programmes use innovative, interactive methods to engage with young people from vulnerable backgrounds. We provide non-traditional educational opportunities designed to allow them to explore, innovate and build important life skills. These include: 1. Interpersonal skills such as teamwork, communication, negotiation and coping skills. 2. Cognitive skills such as decision-making, problem solving and critical thinking. 3. Creativity, confidence, self-awareness

Potential Long Term Impact

We are always looking to extend our programmes' reach and empower more young people. For 2013-14, we have ambitious goals. We aim to: Empower 50,000 young people by training 500 adults in the Dream A Dream life skills philosophy. Strengthen our direct delivery of life skills programmes to 5000 children. Strengthen our life skills programme for 3000 young adults through Dream Connect Programme.
