ABOUT US

The “I Have a Dream” Foundation-Idaho 

supports and inspires Blaine County children to change their lives 

through education.

We Envision

a community where every child is empowered to forge their own future and reach their full potential.

We Promote

educational achievement, one child at a time. With a strong and supportive beginning, Dream Scholars stay on track to remain in school, graduate and pursue college or career and successfully transition to adulthood along with their economically advantaged peers. 

We Create 

opportunities for underserved children to develop and master the skills they need to write their own paths forward, undefined by circumstance.

We Encourage

When young people are confident in their ability to learn and succeed in school, they make good choices, they follow their aspirations through High School to college and career and they contribute to their communities. 

Why It Matters

95%

Nearly all economically advantaged students in Blaine County graduate from high school.

But just 7 in 10 low income students, like our Dream Scholars, will reach high school graduation. 

Of the 7 who graduate, just 1 is likely to go on to college and earn a bachelor’s degree.*

*Idaho’s Hispanic college graduation rate ranks last in the nation
