About us

DreamYard is an arts learning organization based in the Bronx dedicated to community development and school reform.  DreamYard's arts and social justice pedagogy based programs give young people the voice and skills necessary to drive social action as they work toward college and career.  DreamYard has every expectation that through offering sustained and meaningful supports along an educational pathway from kindergarten through 12th grade, our youth will grow to become creative and engaged citizens, life-long learners and the leaders of the 21st century.   

Co-Executive Directors Jason Duchin and Tim Lord founded DreamYard in 1994. Over the past decade, DreamYard has worked with more than 100 public schools and over 100,000 young people and families. DreamYard has developed a robust educational community in the Bronx—from its in-school partnerships and launch of the DreamYard Preparatory High School to its Out of School Programs at the DreamYard Art Center in the Morrisania neighborhood of the Bronx.

The Community DreamYard is focused entirely in the Bronx, a borough that possesses incredible cultural, human and economic assets. The organization believes that the arts are a necessary part of developing those assets to their greatest potential.
