What We Do

Dream BIG works with a community mandate to coordinate, fund, and deliver best-practice, place-based pre-K through young adult learning that enables under-resourced young people to choose with dignity their own path to healthy, happy lives.

Our Model of Change and Growth

Placed-Based Approach

We believe our resources will best be utilized in a concentrated community (Cherry Hill, Baltimore) so that the youth and their families can experience positive benefits from a continuum of services provided.

Community Partnership

We believe a community should determine its own destiny and therefore we present ourselves as an ally to their work versus an entity making decisions on their behalf.

High-Quality Programming

We believe Baltimore youth deserve the best services possible. Their lack of resources should not dictate the quality of programming they receive.

Collective Impact

We believe in the power of collaboration that focuses on a shared vision and utilizes data as a learning tool to determine strategy as well as serve as a metric to help hold the work accountable.

Our Area of Focus

Early Childhood

Academic Growth


Student Wholeness
