About "I Have A Dream" Foundation of New Jersey
"The 'I Have A Dream' Foundation of New Jersey works to ensure that all children have the opportunity to pursue higher education, fulfill their potential, and achieve their dreams. They empower children (“Dreamers”) in under-resourced communities to graduate from college by equipping them with the skills and knowledge to succeed in postsecondary school, along with tuition support to remove financial barriers. By helping their Dreamers gain access to college, they are putting them on a different academic and life trajectory, while having a broader impact on the students' families and the generations that follow."
