Dream Big Now: A locally-based, globally connected youth program

Get students off of Zoom and safely serving their community!

Dream Big Now! is a program for high school and middle school students, eager to give back to their communities, to get outside and make change. In small groups, they will learn about challenges our world is facing and potential solutions to those challenges. Additionally, they connect with other inspiring young people making a positive impact in other parts of the world. This service and leadership development program includes COVID-safe local service activities, as well as lessons and discussions led by experienced teachers.

The programs are separate (numbers permitting) for middle and high school students in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.
