National Mentoring Month: DREAM Alive Partnership

January is National Mentoring Month, a time to drive meaningful change for young people and raise awareness about the power of relationships. TCC is proud to participate in this month and shine a spotlight on our partner, DREAM Alive!

DREAM Alive is an Indianapolis-based nonprofit that seeks to end the cycle of poverty by mentoring local youth in 7th – 12th grade to develop career paths and become civic-minded leaders. Through partnerships with schools, communities, and corporations, DREAM Alive provides their mentees with three key opportunities: career-focused experiential learning, mentoring relationships, and character development.

The DREAM Alive Impact

DREAM Alive participant stats:

  • 100% high school graduation rate
  • 89% go to college, the military, or a career immediately after graduation
  • 69% are in a 4-year college with a full scholarship

TCC and DREAM Alive’s Partnership

TCC has been a DREAM Alive corporate partner for the last three years. Our Store Support headquarters and field team host annual events to share more about how their education will be used in their future careers. Some of their students also visit our offices and shadow in various departments. A previous DREAM Alive student is now in college and has been hired as an intern in the marketing department! You can check out his most recent blog about CES here.

In 2020, we won the “Scholars Choice Award” from DREAM Alive. After their students visited 15-20 companies, they voted on their favorite company, and we were chosen! We’re excited to continue this partnership with a fantastic organization and to keep helping local students.
