Support The Dream

DREAMERS + BELIEVERS: It was all a DREAM. What started out in 2012, as taking 23 high school students on a five-day camping trip turned into a four-year (year-round) holistic high school mentoring program serving hundreds.

THE COMMON GROUND EXPERIENCE: Our village-approach provides the support that ALL children need to thrive; including developing their character, nourishing their wellness, fostering their creativity, and introducing them to unlimited possibilities to ensure prosperity and generational wealth.

THE ACHIEVERS NETWORK: It takes a village to empower a dreamer and we invite you to join us as we inspire our youth to enroll in college, study abroad and enter the workforce as effective leaders, entrepreneurs and world changers.
