Dream Angels, Inc., was founded in 2001 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to mentoring and supporting young girls on an academic, personal, and cultural level. Working in conjunction with several schools in the Richardson Independent School District, members identified third grade as an optimal age and grade level to begin the program. And in January 2002, Dream Angels began formal academic and social activities with a small group of third-grade girls.
Over the years, the program has expanded to include girls in other school districts and surrounding communities. It has grown – grade by grade – with the original participants as well, and now includes girls in their last year of high school.
