We look back at every semester in amazement over the incredible lineup of #DreamSpeakers who volunteer their time and energy to connect with DreamWakers’ classrooms across the country. This spring has been no exception! We hosted a diverse lineup of career all-stars who introduced students to their respective industries, which included a wide variety of jobs in fields ranging from journalism, astronomy, music, public service, design, finance, athletics, and more.

Additionally, DreamWakers’ partnerships played a starring role this spring in our ability to serve more students than ever before. We are always excited to team up with like-minded companies and organizations whose resources help to amplify and expand our mission. For example, this spring we hosted flashchats with White House historian Matthew Costello courtesy of the White House Historical Association, Olympic medalist Hyleas Fountain thanks to our collaboration with Athletes for Hope, foreign service officer Dan Mehring on behalf of the U.S. State Department Office of Public Affairs, and broadway music director Alvin Hough Jr. thanks to our friends at the Ron Brown Scholars Program.

Looking back at some of the connections made between our #DreamSpeakers and students, a few highlights come to mind:

We’re looking forward to continuing the flashchat fun with our summer programming. Be sure to follow along with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram!
