Dream Corps is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit social enterprise and incubator for powerful ideas and innovations designed to uplift and empower the most vulnerable in our society.
Our work stems from three core strengths:
- Communicating breakthrough ideas and frameworks
- Catalyzing new efforts and strategic initiatives
- Connecting across cultures and discipline to build a stronger, more integrated, and more collaborative movement
Dream Corps is the vision of civil rights leader and former advisor to the Obama White House, Van Jones. An activist for more than two decades, Van has fought for social, economic, racial and environmental justice all over the world.
Under Van’s leadership, Dream Corps incubates three programs, #YesWeCode, #cut50, and Green For All. YesWeCode is a national initiative to help train 100,000 low-opportunity youth to become high-level software developers. #cut50 works to popularize bipartisan alternatives and practical solutions to help America safely and smartly reduce its jail and prison populations by 50 percent over the next 10 years. Green For All works to build an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty.
