Love and Hope.

We believe these are the two most powerful forces in the world. Invested in a child, these forces can change the course of a life - even generations that follow.

They are what fuel dreams.

And they are why we come together.

Get Ready to Dream Big!

Our speaker knows something about love, hope, and dreams: 

Meet Bertice Berry, PhD | author, educator, sociologist

No one defies stereotypes, generalizations, or cliches more than Bertice Berry. Growing up poor in Delaware, the sixth of seven children, Bertice was told by a high school teacher that she was "not college material." Fortunately, there was another teacher who believed she was destined for more.
