Dreamcatchers seeks to level the playing field for low-income, historically underrepresented by providing extra academic and social support that our students need in order to be successful in school, but are unable to access due to limited financial and educational resources. We pair each of our students with a one-on-one tutor in a year-long, personalized mentorship relationship. We focus on homework, study skills and academic enrichment. We offer individualized support for each student by partnering closely with classroom teachers, guidance counselors and parents. We are also a place where our students can connect socially with each other and with near-peer tutors who are friends and believers.
