ABOUT MY DREAM SPEAKS
My Dream Speaks is a lively fundraiser that attracts VIP’s each year, to witness the life changing impact of the Global Language Project (GLP) foreign language programs. GLP provides disadvantaged elementary public school students language learning in Arabic, French, Mandarin and Spanish, free of charge, to immerse them in another culture and language in their childhood, which will benefit them in the future, academically and professionally. My Dream Speaks is the primary fundraising event that allows Global Language Project to complete its mission of equipping young children with language skills-once thought to be a luxury-that are now necessary to compete in a global workforce and survive high unemployment rates.
