Who we are

We fuel dreams by empowering youth & their families with the skills to thrive.

Supporting Youth. Restoring Families.

As a non-profit organization, iCan Dream Center connects youth to holistic, innovative special education services. Responding to the urgent societal need to slow the school to prison pipeline in suburban Chicago, we are committed to making a positive contribution by fostering an education setting where neurodiverse youth have access to the skills, resources, and opportunities necessary to thrive beyond their labels.

What we do

The iCan Dream Center provides quality programming for youth. We specialize in working with students with intellectual disabilities, autism, and various learning difficulties.

This program provides the unique opportunity for students to receive high school credits and transition services while addressing the internalized barriers that result from marginalization.
