Town-hall style meeting with with C.J. Anderson about the Dreams Never Die Foundation and their plans for a state-of-the-art sports and academic facility on Mare Island that caters to Vallejo’s youth.

The goal to have the Mare Island endeavor complete is 2023 and will be built from the ground up.

The Dreams Never Die Foundation’s mission is to provide inner city and low-income youth with the resources needed to persevere and ultimately reach their maximum potential in academics and/or athletics. We strive to give the youth a sense of belonging and inspiration, no matter the circumstances they may face.

Aside from the future facility, Anderson will discuss upcoming foundation events such as a trip to Harvard, a Sphero Robotics Workshop, and field trips to the Exploratorium, Google, and Linkedn.
