“I Have a Dream” Oregon



The nation is watching as “I Have a Dream” Oregon (IHAD) changes education from the elementary level up. This year they embarked on a partnership with Alder Elementary School in east Multnomah County, a school with one of the highest poverty rates in the state. Attending to the entire cradle-to-career continuum, and using the research-based STRIVE model to guide their efforts, IHAD is transforming Alder Elementary and its community into a place “where college begins.”

IHAD has expanded its collaboration with other nonprofits to integrate theresources and expertise of over 30 community partners into their curriculum and community. All of us at Levé are elated to invest our time and energy as additional partners in this work. We hope you will join us in supporting IHAD as they strive to create a replicable model that ensures at least 80 percent of dreamer students move on to finish a post-secondary degree.
