Dreamline Goals

Dreamline partners with K-12th grade schools to provide culturally competent mentoring, and direct social emotional instruction to support three core dimensions of a student’s development: social, emotional, and cognitive. This helps young people define their own path to success by helping them to (1) engage with their peers, school, and community; (2) improve their emotional well-being; (3) discover academic success and graduate from high school; and (4) prepare for life after high school.

Coaches are expected to work with students in the following ways: 

  • Goal 1: Advance diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice.
  • Goal 2: Build trusted relationships with young people, parents, school staff, and community members.
  • Goal 3:  Empower youth through social emotional learning (SEL).
  • Goal 4: Work together with students, parents, school staff, and community members as advocates and partners in student learning and wellbeing.

 

The Dreamline program is grounded in the theory that students who develop powerful relationships with trusted adults begin to develop positive attitudes toward school, themselves, and their future. In partnership with K-12th grade schools, Dreamline Coaches intentionally engage underrepresented and marginalized students through the Search Institute’s Developmental Relationships framework to create deep and meaningful connections.
