City Of Dreams Year in Review

2013, A Wonderful Time of Year for City of Dreams

Dear Friends,
It’s that time of the year again when we reflect back on a great year of mentorship and youth development at City of Dreams and when we ask you to help us to reach even more youth next year.
Thanks to your generous support, we served over 75 individual youth in 2013.  We were able provide weekly experiential learning events focused on our 12 life lessons and we maintained 32 one-on-one mentor relationships.
We are looking forward to an even better year in 2014 with new field trips, more talented mentors, and broader support services for more of our deserving youth.
Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to City of Dreams before December 31st.  Every dollar means so much to the youth that we serve, allows us to train new mentors, and take more youth out each Saturday.
Love Without Limits,
Marty Higgins
Executive Director
Oakdale Community Garden Project Takes Root in 2013!
In 2013, with the help of local residents and Hands On Bay Area’s coordination of employeees from Charles Schwab and Advent, City of Dreams created a thriving Community Garden at the Oakdale Community Center.  This Fall residents took in weekly harvests of kale, tomatoes, bok choy, collard greens, mustard greens, cabbage, peppers, chard, peas, green onions, lettuce, sunflower seeds, and herbs.
Meet Kishawn (pictured), one of our Junior Mentors who worked to create the Oakdale Community Garden this Summer.  With help from his garden mentors he started a farm stand where he sales produce from his garden each Thursday at the Bayview Opera House.
