Operation DREAM has produced some phenomenal young men. One such young man is Rafiq Jihad. Rafiq J. has been with Operation DREAM since he was in 6th grade - starting in DREAM Saturday Program. Now a Junior at Rufus King International High School, Rafiq maintains a 3.0 GPA and is involved with numerous programs to support his DREAMs. Outside of his participation in Operation DREAM, he is also a member of the Sponsor-A-Scholar Program and Upward Bound at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Although he appreciates the support that he has in the other programs, he loves Operation DREAM. As a member who has been in our program for 6 years, we asked him about his experience.

“Operation Dream has been a key component of my success in High School. I remember all the things we've done previously that really prepared me for that next step. Thanks to all my MSC’s and the Saturday program, I’ve really been taught how to swiftly overcome adversity and capitalize on my good decision-making. These really helped me breeze through my first few years of High School. I got to do different jobs in the school year and through the summer and that felt really great because I got into the aspects of budgeting. Even through the pandemic the efforts to ensure my well-being was great. Help is always there when you need it and the opportunities are always there for you. Just last summer, I got help in receiving my Learner’s Permit and getting a job at Kohl’s. I am really grateful that I am a part of an amazing program with great people who won’t stop to help other people achieve their goals and become distinctive individuals in society.” - Rafik Jihad

Teen Mentoring Program & Business Creation - DREAM Screen.

DREAM Screen will provide high quality screen-printed apparel products for youth organizations, businesses, schools, churches and individuals seeking custom apparel. DREAM Screen will be a source of income for the young men in the program while they also gain a full spectrum of business skills. Mentors from same communities and experts in their field will guide teens through research, product development, accounting, marketing, graphic design, sales and customer service. While allowing the young men to own the project, mentors will teach and push the young men to heights they may have not known exists. DREAM Screen will be operated out of the Holton Youth + Family Center located at 510 E. Burleigh which borders the Harambee and Riverwest communities.

DREAM Screen addresses the need to expose more young people to hands-on entrepreneurship opportunities while also allowing the young men to engage in career exploration, recognize their innate skills and abilities, and learn more about employment opportunities in the private sector. This opportunity will plant the seed that they can be successful in their own community while fulfilling a need for custom apparel in the community.

Impact100 Greater Milwaukee Thank you!
