Each student is paired with a personal tutor for the year and receives customized academic support.

At DreamCatchers, our middle school students receive outstanding academic support from Stanford and local high school students, who are eager to mentor and guide them through their schoolwork. Each student is paired with a personal tutor for the year, allowing them to develop a close mentoring relationship. Tutors set high expectations, serve as role models, and expose students to opportunities beyond middle school.


Key stakeholders committed to each student's success extend our impact into a student's home and school day.

 Only together as a community can we close the opportunity gap for each of our students.


Classroom Teachers

Palo Alto teachers who see firsthand how each student learns, but who don't always have a way to share their wisdom outside of school.


Parents who have big dreams and love for their children, but don't always have the education and resources necessary to help with their schoolwork.


Young Leaders

Students from Stanford University and local high schools, who are eager for an opportunity to make a difference in their community.


Education Experts

University faculty, master teachers, researchers, and Stanford graduate students who comprise our staff and board, guiding our strategic plan and goals.
