OUR GOAL

is to move students and teachers around the world in the direction of their dreams together.

Why: paying attention

We believe that teaching students to pay attention to and act on what really matters to them in collaboration with others is our hope for the future.

Working with tens of thousands of students in 42 states of the USA and in 35 other countries, Jeffrey Harlan, the founder of Dreamline, has seen the power and reach of inviting students to express and connect their dreams.

How: through alignment

—aligning dreams with values, aligning actions with dreams, and aligning the people and groups who share them.

Countries where Jeffrey Harlan has worked with teachers and students to express and connect their dreams.

TAKE CHARGE: Express Values & Dreams

STUDENTS of any age and in any language: create individual two-sided cloth rectangles using art and words to express personal values on one side, and their dreams to share with the world on the other. Students from 5 to 25 have already done this successfully.

TAKE FLIGHT: Share Globally & Locally

TEACHERS or group leaders: attach student work to a ribbon or rope, creating a physical Dreamline, then use our Dreamline app to add their art, information, and voice recordings to a digital Dreamline that spans the world.

SCHOOLS and other organizations: affirm and celebrate the dreams with local Dreamline exhibitions and events, creating community awareness of what really matters and showing students that their voices are heard.

TAKE ACTION: Reflect, Connect & Collaborate

DREAMLINE staff: create a Group Action Path for each group leader:
  • A visual reflection of the group’s values, dreams, and alignments with goals for a better planet—the United Nations SDGs.
  • Introductions to other group leaders based on shared group passions.
  • Collaborative activity recommendations, considering age range, available technology, and shared concerns.

HELP US--to move students and teachers in the direction of their dreams TOGETHER.

It is completely doable if we align our actions.

Our free program relies on dedicated educators who support their students and donors who support Dreamline.
