Your Financial Donations
As we all know, money makes the world go around! We have benefitted from the generosity of donors – people who know what we are doing and believe it has public benefit. We are truly grateful for every individual and corporation that has contributed to our charity. Education of young people remains critically important to us, and we are extremely proud to have awarded scholarships to 4 of our Dream Girls in their first year of college since 2017. Donations to our Education Fund are always welcomed.
Volunteering an hour or two of your time at any one of our programs will add great value to the lives of our participants. Whether your interest is youth, mothers, fathers or finance, administration, creativity, organizational, or public relations, we welcome you
There’s no greater teacher than good old Mother Nature! Facilitate a session and share your green thumb with our participants.

Phenomenal People has made a difference for this Dream Girl, Britney Bannister!
Britney (22) and her sister, Chelsi (26) were the first girls to start our Dream Girls Club program back in 2006! Britney has been a faithful participant of the program and made many meaningful contributions in the form of fundraising, mentoring the younger girls, assisting with IT & photographing our events, creative food preparation, and even connecting us to a similar mentorship program in Barbados (Empowering Youth International) when she moved there to maintain her discipline in volunteering.
Britney was one of the first recipients of a Dream Girls Club scholarship in 2017 to pay for her first year of junior college in Barbados, where she received her Associates Degree in Nutrition. Subsequently, she moved to the UK and graduated this past May with a Bachelor of Science Degree with Honors Upper Second Class in Nutrition & Health from Coventry University. With an eye on a career as a Registered Dietician, she is poised to enter a Master’s Degree program in the UK in January 2022. Britney is a shining star and a great role model to Dream Girls following in her footsteps! We’re extremely proud of you Brit!
Thank you to all our donors, volunteers, supporters, participants & parents!
