About Dream Makerz

The Dream Makerz Foundation is a Non-profit 501 c 3 Tax Exempt Organization, headquartered in Riverdale, Georgia. Dream Makerz Foundation provides a comprehensive apprenticeship and internship program linking education, training, meaningful employment, and mentoring for Clayton County and Metro Atlanta’s most at-risk adolescents and young adults ages 16-24 that includes retry populations, unemployed and dislocated workers. Premised on the belief that substantive, supported apprenticeships can be powerful catalysts and incentives for youth to pursue their education and employment goals, our mission is to take a holistic approach to equip youth with the human services, skills and experience necessary to take concrete steps towards becoming self-sufficient, self-fulfilled, productive members of society. We share your community development initiatives that strategically promote the growth of low-and moderate-income communities and provide services to these communities to encourage economic growth for the community.
