About Us

Who We Are

DREAM (formerly Harlem RBI) serves over 1,500 East Harlem and South Bronx youth by providing free, high-quality summer and after-school programs to youth, ages 5-22, in an intensive multi-year commitment that connects youth and families to age-appropriate programs and passionate professional staff over time.

All DREAM youth play on a baseball or softball team and participate in a full range of education and youth development programs designed to build the skills and confidence necessary to succeed as healthy and active adults.

DREAM's programs have been recognized nationally and locally by leading youth development practitioners and researchers.

In September 2008, Harlem RBI opened DREAM Charter School. DREAM's mission is to prepare students for high-performing high schools, colleges and beyond through a rigorous academic program that develops critical thinkers who demonstrate a love of learning, strong character, and a commitment to wellness and active citizenship. DREAM inspires every student to recognize their potential and realize their dreams. DREAM currently serves 350 students in grades K-6 and will grow one grade (50 students) each year until it reaches capacity with grades K-8 and a total of 450 students.

What We Do

Using a unique blend of youth development principles and sports, DREAM provides inner-city youth with opportunities to Play, Learn and Grow as student athletes. Staff use the power of teams to Coach, Teach and Inspire youth to recognize their potential and realize their dreams.

Our programs are designed to ensure that all youth graduate high school and matriculate to college. DREAM graduates are:

- Physically and mentally healthy, able to avoid risky behaviors

- High school graduates

- College graduates

- Work-ready, with the basic knowledge and skills to find and maintain a job

- Good teammates, friends and family members, cultivating positive relationships with peers and adults;

- Confident, competent and caring members of their communities

- Active citizens, who participate in their community's social and political life.

WE BELIEVE IN TEAMS

DREAM uses the power of teams to challenge staff and volunteers to meet high standards of performance, to seek meaningful results from our work and to constantly seek improvement in the services we provide. As a team, we are committed to personal and organizational growth. We work together to reach high personal expectations, fulfill our commitment to youth and make Harlem RBI a model learning community. Collaborative relationships are at the core of Harlem RBI's work and we are dedicated to seeking out diverse voices to inform our decisions. We are committed to communicating openly and optimistically.

WE BELIEVE IN DIVERSITY

An ideal candidate understands the importance of a workplace with diverse, cultural backgrounds, ethnicities and heritage, races, gender, sexual orientation, abilities, and ideas. The candidate believes that embracing differences makes us stronger, and is committed to creating and maintaining an open and just work environment.
