The Dream Chaser Academy (DCA) uses “exposure” as a way to teach, inspire and encourage young people to pursue and live the life of their dreams. The goal of DCA is to unlock the potential within each youth through providing them with a new way of viewing the possibilities for their lives. We believe that when young people see themselves as Dream Chasers, they believe that anything is possible, they are open to different ideas, experiences and their thought process changes from “I can’t” to “I can, from “I have never” to “One day I will”, and from “Stop dreaming” to “NEVER Stop Dreaming”.
Dream Chaser Academy emphasizes the importance of knowing your dreams, networking and being prepared for any situation. Participants will have opportunities to create products, sell products, earn money, as well as volunteer time and give back to the community. Additionally, participants will learn the value of working together as a team and being able to pull their own weight. Lastly, individuals selected for the Dream Chaser Academy will learn the importance of leveraging social media, using their voice and marketing products as well as themselves.
