We Are The Change®

The Power of One

We Are The Change is a long time initiative of Dreams for Kids, bringing diverse youth together in service and social impact. The Power of One is a testament to the life and contributions of 12-year-old Jahkil Jackson.

Join Jahkil as he leads a campaign to help fund over 150 new and existing non-profits, social enterprises and social impact projects.

As Jahkil says, “Don’t Wait to be Great!” Join thousands of middle school students who aren’t waiting and are proving the power of one kid can change the world.

Students are each raising funds, teachers are assisting, and volunteers are mentoring.

Join our campaign to make a difference

I am a Student

Over 10,000 youth, grades 5th - 8th will participate in the campaign. The students are led by a Youth Executive Board of young leaders who have started nonprofits and social enterprises, received national awards and are recognized as leaders today. They will be supported by a Youth Advisory Board of 100. The students will each raise a minimum of $100 for social impact projects chosen by youth!

I am a Teacher/Mentor

Over 100 schools will support their middle school youth by helping them register in the campaign. Benefits to the school include free use of Dreams for Kids YES social entrepreneurship virtual curriculum.

Mentors will help guide students and have opportunities to speak with classes.
