The Dream Big program strives to empower college and technical school-bound youth with disabilities to dream big about their future. The program aims to show students that they can do many things that their non-disabled peers can do, and they should not limit their career goals.
Participants will spend each day of the week exploring careers with one of our partner companies and learn the necessary skills to attain them. All camp sessions will be hosted via Zoom. There are 3 weeks available for students based on their interests.
June 14 – 18, 2021: Innovate
For students who are interested in STEM careers. Registration ends June 4.
July 12 – 16, 2021: Hands-On
For students who are interested in trade and technical careers. Registration ends July 2.
July 26 – 30, 2021: Endless Possibilities
A combination of STEM, trade, and technical opportunities for students who are not quite sure what career to choose. Registration ends July 16.
Our partner companies this year include Bayer, Centene, Mercy, Nestle Purina PetCare, Riot Games, Wells Fargo, and more. Don’t miss the opportunity for your child to explore careers at companies committed to disability hiring and learn skills they need to transition to an independent, productive future!
The camp fee is $100 per week. Information about tuition assistance is available upon request.
Dream Big will be hosted via Zoom.
