Mission Statement

The Dream Corps brings people together to solve America’s toughest problems. We back initiatives that close prison doors and open doors of opportunity. Civil rights leader Van Jones founded the Dream Corps to reshape “what’s possible” in the field of social justice. We have had significant wins in criminal justice reform, environmental solutions, diversity in tech sectors, and increased civic participation to strengthen our democracy.

About This Cause

Since our founding, we’ve impacted millions of lives by working with stakeholders from all walks of life to:
Transform the criminal justice system
Increase opportunity in the tech sector
Build an inclusive green economy
Shrink the culture of intolerance, fear and division

Social challenges -- and solutions -- do not exist in silos. That’s why Green For All, #cut50, #YesWeCode, and #LoveArmy share a platform: to maximize impact and create new opportunities. We support economic, environmental and criminal justice innovators all under one roof. Our shared platform helps leaders create synergies, leapfrog obstacles and maximize impact.

Our programs include:

#cut50, a bipartisan initiative to reduce crime and incarceration in all 50 states. We empower people impacted by the criminal justice system to tell their stories. We advance policies to keep families together, make our communities safer, and deliver justice and healing.

#YesWeCode, which helps 100,000 young women and men of diverse backgrounds find success in the tech sector. Nearly 70% of our program graduates have secured internships, apprenticeships, or full-time jobs in the tech sector. Co-founded by Prince and Van Jones, Prince’s commitment to ensuring that young people of color have a voice in the tech sector continues to help future visionaries create the tech of tomorrow.

Green For All, which works to build an inclusive green economy by moving $1 trillion dollars from polluters’ pockets into low-income communities. Our goal is to make sure people of color and working families have a place and a voice in the climate movement.

#LoveArmy, a national network of people committed to mobilizing our grassroots network of over 130,000 people in all 50 states to stand up to hate, heal divides and work for a positive, inclusive future.

Each program is an expression of the Dream Corps mission and values. Our approach is unique: we bring unlikely allies together across separate issues. By transforming barriers into opportunities, we are uniting the country towards a better, brighter future.
