Today, we believe in the power of dreams to not only enable each of us to become our best selves—but to help make the world a better place, dream by dream.”

Coach will also feature interviews and portraits with Dream It Real students on its brand channels, sharing their dreams and how Dream It Real and the Coach Foundation have supported them along the way.
