DREAMAMERICA IS AN ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND LIFE PLANNING PROGRAM FOR JUNIORS AND SENIORS IN HIGH SCHOOL AND FIRST YEAR COLLEGE STUDENTS.
DreamAmerica exist for two reasons:
1. To bring awareness about entrepreneurship to junior/seniors and first year college students in small communities. 2. To provide a structure that cultivates thinking about what's next in life for young adult students.
We meet every Monday from 4:00 to 6:00. It may run a little over once in a while. (subject to change)
Currently applying for Fall 2015
First thirty minutes we have a guest speaker. Second thirty minutes we focus on life planning. The last hour is project focused.
Each semester we focus on projects in our community that we believe provide opportunity for growth to our town and that allow our students to see how entrepreneurship impacts our community. We find projects that will allow our students the opportunity to be hands on in various ways.
