Today’s Friday’s Focus is DREAM Alive.

 DREAM Alive is
an organization that works with at-risk youth in the community to help them
become leaders through mentorship, career, and character development. Founded
by former Colts player, Tarik Glenn; he had a vision of helping young men and
women and creating leaders to lead the next generation.

The program connects with seventh graders and
works with them for six years through high school to ensure they are
successful. By partnering with Indiana companies, scholars are able to
participate in internships, field trips, and various mentor programs. When
scholars reach their junior and senior year, they’re introduced to young
professionals and build one-on-one relationships.

D.R.E.A.M. Alive, Inc.’s mission is to take youth
on a lifelong journey of learning; discovering their community, growing in
character, and achieving their dreams, so that they can be a part of living out
a healthy community. To learn more about D.R.E.A.M Alive, visit their site
