Each day in Dream Big Camp, middle and high school students with disabilities explore careers and build confidence in their disability identity. The Dream Big Team leads the curriculum portion of the day, and we partner with top inclusive companies to help the students see possibilities for their futures.
Our Partner Companies talk with the students about their work, the problems they are solving and all the different roles and skills they need to do that. Companies engage the students with a hands-on activity related to their work. It’s always a bonus when employees with disabilities can join the conversations and talk directly with students about their experience being welcomed and valued at their organization.
Partners often host a visit and lunch, but sometimes visit us a Camp instead. The Dream Big Team works with each company to develop a day that makes an impact for students.
A Value Add:
Increase the Cultural Competency of Your Team
As a Dream Big Partner, your team will benefit in significant ways.
Each of our partners participates in a disability inclusion training session that ensures a positive experience for our students and adds to your employees’ toolboxes, whether welcoming a new colleague with a disability or better understanding the needs of your many disabled customers.
This training is led by our team of experts, who also have disabilities themselves, and makes a tremendous impact for all those who participate. Usually a $2,500 training, the workshop is required and complimentary for our Dream Big Partners.
We ask our Partner Companies to support this program with a $2,500 stipend. Our Team spends significant time with each Partner Company preparing for the day and employees truly love being a part of it. All of our Partners leave the experience knowing they’ve helped build a brighter community for each of us!
