Now this group of change agents has come together to lead the national Power of One Campaign to enroll tens of thousands of middle school students to raise $1 million. And the kids apply 100% of the funds raised go to social impact projects. Our sponsors cover all operating costs.

Teachers are enrolling their students and classes. Mentors are guiding students and speaking to classes. Every participant is creating social impact and true change and has free access to Dreams for Kids social entrepreneurship curriculum.
