The Dreamers Soccer Clinic has several programs that are intended to encourage and motivate low-income youth to dream big and pursue higher education. This organization aims to develop youth into young leaders by supporting and providing them with access to academic and athletic resources. This organization aspires to make low-income youth realize their intellectual, athletic and academic potential through mentorship, guidance and through the sport of soccer. We all have a story to tell and sometimes some students need to hear stories that they can relate to. Having a mentor or a system of support can help a student fulfill their personal and academic goals. For that reason, The Dreamers Soccer Clinic implemented this program to be able to enhance their academic, personal and athletic endeavors.
