Purpose Statement

Dreamporte is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of disadvantaged youth through a virtual reality and mentorship education program. With emerging technology such as the Oculus Rift virtual reality goggles, it\x{e2}\x{80}\x{99}s now possible to view life-like scenery from around the world in a 3D panoramic experience, allowing students to discover new places, knowledge, and passions. We aim to use this technology, along with volunteer-led interactive activities, to educate, engage, and inspire at-risk youth to keep learning about the world. We hope to bring social justice beyond the scope of our weekly program by directing students to other resources to pursue the interests they develop through our program.
