Why Choose Us
From child to an adult, life’s opportunities may slip through the cracks. An opportunity results in a choice, and choices can lead to successes or problems. Currently, today’s youth are making too many bad choices without the complete understanding of their opportunities, or the value an opportunity could potentially provide. Somehow there is a missing component, a missing link, or a missing translation that does not properly get executed or decoded– and that’s where Dream Big comes in.
Dream Big Community Center (aka – DBCC) is an organization dedicated to help individuals to have a better quality of life by providing unique opportunities for young adolescents to learn, grow, and flourish into the adults of the future. Our programs are designed to teach the youth how to dream their ambitions, build their dreams, and live their passions.
We have monthly events in the Vancouver-Portland metropolitan area. Check our events page to learn more.
Our Funding from Inception to July 2016
Meet Our Founder & ED
Starting Dream Big Community Center wasn’t a childhood dream, but it’s my calling. I’ve been very fortunate in my life to have received so many great support throughout the years. In those years, I made lots of mistakes. I don’t want any kids to live out my mistakes.
My desire for this organization is to help others in ways I didn’t receive assistance learning to pursue my passion. This will be a lot of work, but I’m not scared of it. I also know this won’t be an individual effort. I’m looking to engage with the community to solve problems and make it a better place for the next generation.
My ``Why`` to this is the following:
- I’ve had “unofficial” mentors steer me out of trouble countless times and I’m grateful for their intervention;
- not all students engage in “stereotypical” extracurricular activities;
- kids with “labels” receive the most attention, which shouldn’t be the case;
- every child is at risk of not pursuing their dream;
- all dreams matter and we need to our very best in making sure every dream counts;
- and because helping others is my calling.
