Since 2014, national education technology nonprofit DreamWakers has been bringing the world into classrooms by connecting career professionals with students in underserved urban and rural schools using free video conferencing tools. DreamWakers bridges the gap between classroom learning and real-world careers by facilitating “flashchats” – interactive video dialogues – between students in low-income communities and exceptional, vetted, diverse, and dynamic professional role models who bring math, science, technology, social sciences, and other lessons to life.

To date, DreamWakers has reached communities across 42 states, having served over 15,000 students in hundreds of schools across the U.S. With your help, DreamWakers’ flashchats program is growing at an annual pace of 45 percent.
