Kristi Yamaguchi’s Always Dream Foundation inspires underserved children to reach for their dreams through innovative reading programs and by advancing the cause of early childhood literacy.
We partner with and fund breakthrough reading programs that combine technology with books to raise literacy skills, increase overall academic success and life potential. We also work to engage and involve families and the community around the importance of early childhood literacy through events and advocacy that inspire children to dream big.
Who We Help
The Always Dream Foundation works to connect children with books and technology in the classroom and in the community.
In the classroom, the Always Dream Foundation focuses on children in Title I schools in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. We currently partner with Raising a Reader and Footsteps2Brilliance to bring technology-enhanced literacy
programming to 12 schools, representing 38 kindergarten and 6 first grade classrooms, impacting 1,140 children during
the school year.
