DreamAkron is based off of "College is Real" in Richmond, California and is a mentoring/tutoring program that is designed to help Kenmore High School students get to college, succeed in college, and later have careers in the Akron area.

A three-tier tutoring/mentoring program is used to create a "college culture" at Kenmore High School. Tutoring is available in all major subjects with emphasis on development of writing skills.

DreamAkron also works together with Akron Professionals (Torchbearers) and Honors College Students to create and take advantage of leadership opportunities in the Akron community and on campus.
