CARDBOARDO raising money for FOUNDING FUTURES
Learning Dreams works to strengthen the culture of learning in homes and communities!
Learning Dreams works to build connections between people and community resources. We support struggling learners by exploring their dreams and their deep motivations, helping them take the steps they need to move forward on those dreams. We work with children, youth, parents, and families. The key to the learning success of all children is the parents, families, and communities that support and appreciate learning.
Learning Dreams has partnered with Hennepin County and St. Paul Public Libraries, Minneapolis and St. Paul Public Schools, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Blue Cross Blue Shield and other organizations, community groups, and government entities.
Learning Dreams is a program housed in the School of Social Work at the University of Minnesota.
This fundraiser is brought to you by Cardboardo.org, a group in the Twin Cities that works with artists to support good causes.
Lizardman Art selected Learning Dreams as his cause of choice, and when you donate $10 or more you'll have the chance of winning one of several original pieces he created.
Why is Lizardman supporting Learning Dreams?
"Learning Dreams is a project that takes cues from students' own interests rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach to addressing learning issues. Their approach emphasizes parental involvement and community connections. Their written vision asserts: 'Learning Dreams breaks out of the mold of waiting for schools to tackle issues that belong to the family and their community' and 'success in education leads to poverty reduction.' These are seriously good folks doing seriously good work for Minneapolis."
