Legends

Welcome DREAM Legends! This page is dedicated to providing you with helpful resources while we all navigate new challenges, because even after you graduate, the maxim "DREAM is Family", remains true.

Extra innings

As we celebrate DREAM’s 30th Anniversary year, our team is exploring more ways to stay connected and engaged with you, the founding members of our growing alumni network. An important new component of that effort will be the monthly alumni newsletter below, aptly titled Extra Innings. While this name plays homage to our baseball roots, it also conveys our belief that your relationship with DREAM continues well beyond your “regulation” time with the organization. Post-graduation, beyond your time as a Legend, alumni will always be part of the DREAM family, and will always be crucial to our success.


Extra Innings will provide you with organizational updates, employment/volunteer opportunities, information about upcoming events at DREAM, interesting stories, and more. See an archive of Extra Innings below:
