    We will work with you to set up a payment plan that fits your schedule. If you are interested in sponsoring a Dreamer Scholar, please contact Lori Canova at 303-444-3636 x116 or e-mail lori.canova@ihaveadreamboulder.org.

We will invite you to attend class updates twice a year, and volunteer opportunities are available where you may develop a personal relationship with the Dreamer Scholars.
