The mission of the Fields of Dreams after-school program is to develop the athletic, educational and life skills of young people in disadvantaged areas of the District of Columbia while increasing their self-esteem. The program is motivated by the belief that there is great value in combining athletic, educational, nutritional and citizenship training in a way that connects and reinforces the four for children. Since 2002, the program has served 1,000 young dreamers.
