About Us

What we’re about?

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.

Who we are?

Dream Big Community Center (DBCC) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2004. The organization was founded to help the development of young adolescents in the Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon Metropolitan area. DBCC was created to bring back the value of community to neighborhoods, and to allow all people to follow their dreams – no matter what age they may be!

The DBCC Pedagogy:

  • Learning objectives designed to make the dream tangible.
  • Goal setting processes with timelines.
  • Educating of hobby, job, and career.
  • Financial literacy.
  • Post-secondary education pathways.
  • Involvement of immediate family.

Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement is to be an organization to help individuals Dream Big, with a main focus on kids to discover and follow their dream. DBCC will provide a safe place for youth of all ages to learn life fundamentals through programs, services, and resources. Dream Big will be a place where everyone can Dream Big while having fun, without repercussion or ridicule.
