College For All!
Some people dream of college.
We make it happen !
Partnering with organizations, we help students and their families to better understand scholarships and financial aid to fund a college education so that they reduce or avoid loan debt.
EduDreamer is about…Motivating students to identify their inner strength, find their voice, and see themselves as leaders, achievers, and college degree receivers– through direct service, staff professional development, and presentations.
