Dream Builders Alliance

Dream Builders Alliance is a program built for families to support a young adult’s transition to adulthood. The program is comprised of mentorship for the young adult and a series of education workshops for the parents, guardians, and other family members.

How it works

Dream Builders Alliance puts young adults in the driver seat, focusing on their strengths and interests to set goals and develop skills. We assist young adults to set vocational goals, make plans for living life how and where they want to, and encourage skill building in the community. Young adults are matched one-on-one with a volunteer mentor to explore their dreams and goals. Mentor matches meet up in the community weekly for six months.
