Operation DREAM was founded in 2006 to serve boys unable to participate in organizations like the Boys and Girls Club and the YMCA due to poverty and lack of transportation.
These children face the greatest challenges of anyone in our society. In Milwaukee, nearly 3 in 5 will drop out of school before graduation. Without an education, they will be lured to criminal activity and many will face violence, incarceration, and worse.
Operation Dream provides a sanctuary on Saturdays and personalized on-call “wrap around” support for these kids to learn how to survive the temptations of the streets, how to dream of a brighter future, and how to achieve their dreams. We offer a structured environment that supports four major initiatives: academic achievement, work training, family & community, and health & fitness.
