About Dreams For Kids DC:
Dreams For Kids DC provides life-changing activities that empower children with physical and developmental disabilities to unite with their peers and realize their potential. DFKDC events are adaptive sports clinics held once or twice a month for children with disabilities aged 4 – 24. Through our events, those with physical and developmental disabilities are able to come off the sidelines and unite with their peers. A lot of these children have been bullied in schools, and are left out of activities with able-bodied children. The empowerment and self confidence gained through the clinic will carry over from the field to the home, classroom, and the community, allowing them to realize that their disability will not prevent them from fulfilling their dreams. Each child is partnered with a volunteer to learn the essence of teamwork, have a mentor, and also bond over a sense of camaraderie.
When & Where
Dreams For Kids DC
Dreams For Kids DC provides free life-changing activities to empower children with physical and mental disabilities to unite with their peers and realize their potential. Dreams For Kids DC (DFKDC) provides adaptive sports clinics for children with disabilities between the ages of 4-24. Many of these children are bullied in schools and left out of activities with their able-bodied peers. DFKDC clinics empower this often isolated group to come off the sidelines and participate in activities such as waterskiing, dance, football and ice hockey, sometimes for the very first time. The self-confidence gained through these programs carries over from the field and rink to the home and classrom, allowing each participant to realize that theie disability will not prevent them from fulfilling their dreams.
