DASH Foundation

The DASH Foundation provides at-risk communities with experiential learning programs and life opportunities that educate, develop, and support their personal and professional development.

Young adults who are a part of the DASH Network are required to focus on 2 things: 1) Their HOME and 2) Their DREAMS!

We believe that young adults need a home where they can experience the pitfalls in life, but also the rewards of it. A home that offers a supportive community who they know will support them to success during the good times, but also be there to support the failures during the challenging times when they’re having to learn tough lessons. HOME for our community represents a place where you can:

H: Be Honest

Being honest with yourself and the current reality where you’re beginning is important when beginning your journey to success. How does the home feel where you’re living? How much money does it cost to live your current lifestyle? Are you giving every day the best you got?

O: Be Open

To grow and be the best you can be, we must be challenged and tested. No matter if the experience you’re having in life is good or bad, we will always be open with one another. Be vulnerable, we are not here to judge you, only to help you fulfill your dreams.

M: Be Motivated

Why are you living in our network? What does “Success” look like for you? These are important questions that we will reflect on daily and utilize to push you to your full potential. Life’s challenges often feel like they are never ending, so we will help you find out your “WHY” so that “resilience” becomes a second nature tool.

E: Be Educated

We are not speaking in the phrase you’re normally used to…”Go to college”! Nope! We are speaking of day-to-day education on the necessities it takes for you to be successful, happy, and fulfilled. Every day is a day to grow, learn, and be better. We will hold one another accountable to learn what we do not know if something affects us negatively or prevents us from reaching our maximum potential.

Once our young adults have created HOME, now its time to live the #DASHLife and follow their DREAMS! Our community will focus on empowering them through our social-emotional and character development program that allows them to establish their DREAMS:

D – Driver (Young Adult In Control)

R – Relationships (Support Network)

E – Education (Higher-Learning)

A – Accountability Team (Development Team)

M – Motivation (Why/Daily Ambition)

S – Spirituality (Purpose)
