Our mission is to ignite the desire of at risk youth communities in Austin to become lifelong leaders by actively engaging them in safe and structured sport activities through tennis, soccer and other athletic programs. Ignite a Dream will achieve its mission by providing all underprivileged children with athletic opportunities that will teach them valuable life skills as well as provide them with tools, resources and the passion necessary to excel.
Working with our students, our goal is to use our programs as a vehicle to introduce and reinforce positive life lessons that will prepare them for a better future. Our programs are geared towards building self-esteem and self respect, teaching sportsmanship and teamwork, as well as providing leadership opportunities. As a result, we require each of our students participating in our programs to sign a contract holding them accountable to their actions on the field as well as inside the classroom.
