Scott Gilmour, Chairman of the Board of Trustees for "I Have a Dream" will speak on how the programme helps children from low income communities reach their educational and career goals by providing a long-term programme of mentoring and enrichment.
The "I Have a Dream" programme has been operating in the Wesley community of Mt Roskill since 2003, with significant success. They are now expanding to 1,500 disadvantaged youth across 4 schools in the Tikipunga/Otangarei community in Whangarei.
These Auckland "Dreamers" have achieved on many metric levels, including leadership, community participation, sports and quality of life. But perhaps the most significant, and certainly the most easily-quantified is their educational success.
