Princeton Dream Team is hosting the Chasing a Dream: Benefit Gala on Saturday, May 4th to bring together Trenton high school students, Princeton students, and local community members in an evening of celebration. This event will also provide an opportunity to honor all of the seniors in our Futuro Tutoring Program. We have been working with this cohort of students for two years; these are students who have been working hard to overcome many obstacles and pursue a higher level of education. Between SAT tutoring sessions and college application guidance, we have seen these students grow and this gala is an opportunity to celebrate their efforts and encourage them as they go on to pursue their college degree. We will be welcoming Professor Ruha Benjamin as our keynote speaker, who will be speaking on higher education access.

Throughout the night, we will also be fundraising for this year’s Chasing-A-Dream Scholarship, a scholarship that is given every two years to two high-achieving students who are a part of our Futuro Tutoring Program and are ineligible for financial aid or loans due to their immigration status.

We invite you to join us in solidarity and support for our students on this special night.

A special thank you to our sponsors: the Bobst Center for Peace and Justice, the Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the Pace Center for Civic Engagement, Princeton Latinos y Amigos, and the Program in Latin American Studies. This event would not have been possible without their support and generosity.
