BENEFITING: DREAM JAMAICA
EVENT DATE: Jun 02, 2017
Dream Jamaica in partnership with Youth Can Do I.T. present DAB Summer '17, an exciting 4-week skill-building and fun-filled summer camp for low-income high school students in Jamaica. The camp includes web development workshops, entrepreneur classes, college prep, SAT Prep, internship opportunities and so much more!
Dream Jamaica is a 501c3 nonprofit that has served over 350 high school students
since 2008. Twice as many Dream Jamaica participants go to college compared to the
national average. Past participants have graduated from universities including MIT, UWI and UTech. We provide mentorship, college prep, and career development, and we also impart the importance of giving back to the community through service learning projects. This is the 10th annual summer camp, and we have 50 students ready to learn and have fun.
With your help, 50 low-income high school students can have an exciting summer away from the stress of their day-to-day life. Many of these students live in crime-ridden communities and do not have positive influences in their life. DAB Summer '17 provides these students in Jamaica with the opportunity and hope for a brighter future.
The camp is free to all students. The cost to support the camp is $100 per week per student, or $400 per student for the entire program.
