About Us

About the Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream   

In less than two years, the Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream (MCAAD) will open its doors in Washington, D.C. to visitors from around the world.  Our mission is advance economic and social mobility, by celebrating lives and ideas that embody the American Dream, confronting barriers to opportunity, and catalyzing solutions to overcome those barriers. We aim to renew the ideal of the American Dream — however one defines it. We broaden opportunity by expanding knowledge of and access to education, health, and finance, and by empowering an entrepreneurial mindset.

In Washington, MCAAD is building an interactive and engaging Visitor Center that will inspire people to renew their own American Dreams through celebrating others who have worked to achieve their ambitions, understanding and learning to challenge institutional and cultural barriers, and learning some of the life tools necessary to make dreams a reality. The Center will also house a conference center, a thought leadership division focused on economic and social mobility and a small theater. Online, we are building an expansive presence that complements our thought leadership and influence role through the hosting of conferences and discussions and through the publication of commissioned research. Our digital platform will also provide access to content on the American Dream, and to direct opportunities for learning and certification programs that provide people with pathways for their personal journeys.
