Fulfill The Dream Cincinnati, OH

This chapter started in the summer of 2010 with a partnership with Jana Lavelle Natterman and the YMCA of Cincinnati. The program was implemented in 28 different locations through out the city, Fulfill The Dream became a key curriculum in engaging youth in after school programs throughout the city. Working also in partnership with Elementz of Cincinnati, youth were able to develop their identities as cultural change agents.

Youth from this chapter participated in a Nation Youth Summit where they were able to inspire, encourage, and “edutain” youth from around the nation using the arts. Fulfill The Dream continues to be used in Cincinnati in a variety of after school settings. Members from Good Life continue to frequent the city for conferences and trainings.
