DreamWakers connects classrooms to career role models by way of video chat because “students can’t be what they can’t see.” Eighty-eight percent of students who have participated had never met someone in the respective speakers’ professions. Working with fourth- through twelfth-grade classrooms, DreamWakers serves U.S. schools in which at least 50 percent of the student body is eligible for free or reduced-price lunch. Speaking of which, you can be a guest speaker during your lunch. Founders Monica Gray Logothetis and Annie Medaglia loved volunteering in classrooms when they were in college, but they didn’t have the same flexibility when they started working. When they noticed that their peers had the same problem, they created this way to volunteer during lunch to bring much-needed resources and role models to schools.
