What We Do
The Dominguez Dream collaborates with elementary school principals and faculty, parents and community volunteers to provide Literacy and STEAM programs to 3,500 students in 11 schools across 5 markets in California – Sacramento, Napa, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and North San Diego - and 2 schools in Arizona. We support schools with at least 60% of students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. Through our programs, we touched the lives of over 150,000 students, families and school administrators and staff.
Our inquiry‐based programs provide hands on learning of 21st century skills, building our students critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creative skills. For many students, our programs are the first and only opportunity to access STEAM enrichment and interface with professionals in the field who serve as a role models. We strive to bridge the educational achievement gap by providing a positive and lasting impact on students, parents, educators, schools and the surrounding community.
