“Dream Catchers” is a George Mason University partnership that began with Fairfax County Public Schools and has expanded to Prince William County Public Schools. It provides hope for college capable youth enrolled in the FCPS and PWPS Nontraditional School Programs. This unique partnership identifies and supports these students in achieving their dreams to attend and graduate from college through the utilization of mentors and role models from the MASON community. It represents a significant first step in providing hope and support for students who may not be considering higher education!
