The Abundance program is a relatively brief Dreamline experience with far reaching impact as it develops self-awareness, global empathy, and a compelling vision for the future.

This sequence is designed for live presentation so that students have a guided experience through the materials and process, facilitating both the depth of focus and relationship development that are critical for an impactful Dreamline experience.

Dreamline Abundance materials are appropriate for students in third grade through college both in the US and abroad.

Our well established 4-part online sequence begins when students learn about and connect to the dreams of others around the world, fostering empathy and global awareness.

The next step is to focus on themselves, their personal values, and their visions of the future. We call this the Inside Selfie.

Students are then ready to articulate and creatively express a dream they can believe in and share with the world in their own unique Dreamline Banner. Handmade and original student work is a hallmark of the Dreamline process.

Remote participants create a Dreamline Banner on paper, photograph it, and submit it to their teacher. On-site participants create their Dreamline Banner on cloth which the teacher can photograph. Voice recordings are also invited to add an “audio signature” to each piece.

After receiving and approving student work, program leaders upload the student Dream Banners using Dreamline’s mobile app. Student Banners join the Digital Dreamline our online gallery of thousands of student dreams from around the world.

After all of the Dream Banners are online, students gather, often with other community members, to celebrate every voice–each creative expression of a dream to believe in and share with the world.

On-site classes can project Dreamline Banners for the class, display physical ones, and invite community members to join on Zoom.


HOW TO BEGIN

Dreamline Abundance can be led by educators who have learned the instructional process in a Dreamline Abundance Training Webinar or can be led by our Dream Team Youth Mentors who work directly with students through the Zoom platform.

The cost for a school staff led Dreamline Abundance program, including the training webinar, is a Pay What You Can Donation to Dreamline of any amount.

The cost for a Dream Team Youth Mentor led program depends on the number of sessions and students. We provide a quote after consultation with you.

Accolades

“Dreamline offers a simple yet profound way to connect the human family in a time of social distancing.” 

Sue Blythe, Creator of We, the World’s Climate Collaboratory

Dreamline’s online program gives kids an opportunity to dream big – beyond the frustrations and limitations of our current situation. Having meaningful goals to work towards will energize them and the online Dreamline will help them feel connected to other kids at a time when connections are harder to come by.

–3rd Grade Teacher, Philadelphia, PA

“Now more than ever, the health and security of our planet depends on the realization that our local wellbeing is connected to global actions. Dreamline enables youth to connect online to achieve this realization and to start brainstorming ways to transform the world for the better, using others’ creative ideas as inspiration.
