The CJ McCollum Dream Center Initiative is a community platform whose aim is to create safe spaces for young people to learn, explore, create, and grow.
Through a community-based partnership with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metro, Dream Centers will be hosted at club locations throughout the city. Each space will feature physical improvements, a sizeable technology donation, and the contribution of age-appropriate, culturally relevant literacy materials.
The implementation of strategic programming will expose club members to new ideas, new places, new cultures, and new career paths – all with the goal of providing members with the resources they need to dream big!
The first CJ McCollum Dream Center was opened in November 2016 at the Blazers Boys & Girls Club. Check out the gallery below for photos from our ribbon cutting event.
