OUR PROGRAMS

The Dreamer and Dream Coach Philosophy:

Entrepreneurial and career mentorship play a crucial role in empowering the disadvantaged, and especially minority women, to overcome the unique challenges they often face in our current climate. For many individuals from these communities, access to resources, networks, and opportunities is limited, making it difficult to navigate the complexities of entrepreneurship. A mentor who understands the specific barriers and biases can provide invaluable guidance and support, helping to level the playing field. By sharing their knowledge, experiences, and connections, mentors can equip aspiring entrepreneurs with the tools they need to succeed. This is where our ‘Dreamers and Dream Coaches’ take shape.

For minorities, entrepreneurial and career mentorship offer more than just practical advice. It also serves as a source of inspiration and motivation. Seeing successful individuals from similar backgrounds who have overcome obstacles and achieved their goals can instill a sense of belief and possibility. Mentorship provides a safe space for minority entrepreneurs to discuss their unique challenges, share their fears and aspirations, and receive guidance on how to navigate a predominantly homogenous business environment. Through mentorship, minority women can find the encouragement and guidance necessary to break down barriers, challenge stereotypes, and make a lasting impact in their chosen industries. Ultimately, mentorship creates a supportive ecosystem that fosters innovation, encourages diversity, and drives educational and economic growth by unlocking the untapped potential of the disadvantaged and minority women in today’s success landscape.

The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.

How It Works:

Our Dreamer and Dream Coach Model follows a structured process designed to foster meaningful connections and provide guidance, specific to the need of the Dreamer.  The program begins with an application and selection process, where mentees are matched with mentors based on their goals, industry preferences, and areas of expertise. Once the Dream Coach/Dreamer pairs are established, the program kicks off with an initial orientation session, where expectations, objectives, and boundaries are discussed, followed by regular support and monitoring from the seasoned Time2Dream staff and volunteers.

Throughout the mentorship program, Dream Coaches provide guidance and support to their Dreamers through regular meetings, either in person or virtually. These interactions can take various forms, including one-on-one sessions, group workshops, or networking events. Dream Coaches share their knowledge, insights, and experiences, offering practical advice on business, education and career strategies, marketing, finance, and other relevant topics. They also serve as sounding boards, listening to the Dreamers’ ideas, challenges, and concerns, and providing ongoing, constructive feedback and encouragement.

In addition to the mentor-mentee relationship, the program often incorporates educational resources, such as workshops, seminars, or online courses, to further enhance the Dreamers’ skills and knowledge. These resources can cover a wide range of topics, from leadership and communication to negotiation and market research.

As the program progresses, mentees have the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned in real-world scenarios, with the guidance and support of their mentors. The mentorship program concludes with a final evaluation and reflection, where both mentors and mentees assess the progress made, discuss achievements, and identify areas for continued growth.
