Activate Program- Merrimack College
DREAM’s Merrimack Chapter is a student group focused on building pride and community in disability awareness through events, training, mentorship and sharing our stories.
National DREAM is a part of the National Center for College Students with Disabilities, under the U.S. Department of Education. Its mission includes the following: “DREAM advocates for student rights, increased accessibility, social and policy change, and aims to provide support and mentorship to local campus disability groups and individual students.”
Our program builds relationships with peers in a variety of ways, including mentorships. Being a mentor can involve anything from getting coffee, going to a sporting event or being a friend. We try to partner people with similar interests as much as possible.
