The Northland "I Have a Dream" Fund is part of the I Have a Dream Charitable Trusts programme which works with children at Te Kura o Otangarei, Tikipunga Primary School, Tikipunga High School and Totara Grove Primary School.
I Have a Dream works with Kiwi kids for 15 years, from their first years at school until they move on to tertiary study or employment. The heart of the I Have a Dream programme is the Navigators. Navigators have a formal relationship with the school they work in and follow their assigned group of dreamers through primary secondary, and tertiary education to provide consistent academic oversight, advocacy, and support. They also engage with the children’s whanau and the wider community, providing wraparound services to do whatever it takes to keep each of our Dreamers on track and lead them to academic and life success.
