Children and the nation

The education of the children shapes up not just their personal development and life chances but also the economic and social progress of the nation. The indicators on youth neither enrolled in school nor working, tracks the extent to which youth are at risk of limiting their future prospects at a critical stage of their lives. The foundations like ‘I have a Dream’ were formed to address this need of the children to continue their education and attain their ambitions. I have a dream foundation empowers children in low-income communities to achieve higher education and fulfill their leadership potential. By helping these children gain access to college, the foundation puts these Dreamers or adopted children, on a different academic and life trajectory.

The program has found a number of supporters and sponsors worldwide. Sponsors are those individuals who make a long term commitment to a class of 50 to 100 Dreamers that the Sponsor supports over the duration of the Dreamers' progression from early elementary school to college. Among the sponsors of the program is the Deep South Company which has made a strong commitment to support the foundation. The success of the foundation has been enormous with the drop out rates decreasing and many children completing their education. The higher rates of school completion and college enrollment indicate the extent to which students have attained a basic education and are prepared for higher levels of education or the workforce in the recent years.

Deep Surplus, run by CEO David Disiere, believes that children are the face of tomorrow. Their development is essential for the progress of the community and the society. Deep South has made a strong commitment to support the underprivileged children of organizations like the ‘I have a dream’ Foundation.

Meh, you're doing them more harm than good. College is stressful and I hate it. They're better off not going I say.

The fact is in today's society you can't get a decent job without a degree. I think that it is unfortunate that this is the case, but that's just the world we live in.

I'd disagree with this. There are a ton of jobs you can get without degrees. Unless you are referring to the simplicity of getting a job with a degree due to competition for the non educated jobs?

How many steady careers can you get without a degree? I mean you can create a business and be successful with that, but honestly, how often does that happen?

I meant more like, costco, at&t, a craft such as a plumber, etc. They aren't the most glamorous jobs but they are steady careers with good pay and benefits.
Plus, city jobs like police, fire department, among others.

That's not really what I was referring to. You can't really move up the ladder with jobs like those. There's nothing wrong with those kind of jobs, but without a degree you can't really break out of your social class.

I suppose I'd agree with that. I guess you can't move out of middle - upper middle class with those type of careers.
