Youth Empowerment Educational Grants
In a Perfect World
In a Perfect World
IAPW curricula are intended to be used in school, after school, and at community resource centers, engaging students from grades 3-12. Grants cover the cost of one complete classroom kit, implementation training, and ongoing support. All curricula are aligned with Common Core Education Standards, as well as CASEL’s social-emotional competencies.
Through the power of art and storytelling, Dreamcatchers teaches kids about social issues from hunger and poverty to clean water and climate change, cultivating their natural empathy for other children and for the planet, and empowering them to make a difference.
INSPIRE is a social-emotional learning curriculum fortifying young people to become the best version of themselves and preparing them to be empathetic leaders.
During the Youth Ambassadors sessions, students have the opportunity to discover their true selves and learn all the parts that make them who they are. They have taken a deep dive into understanding identity, values, strengths, passions, goals, and how to support themselves.
The highlights of the Dreamcatchers series for me were the self-reflection and discovery that I watched students explore. Their thoughts were no longer swirling around in their mind. They had a safe space to share their ideal world. The content of the lessons was very thoughtful, student-friendly, and easy to follow.
Some of the highlights of the Dreamcatchers program were the activities that the students got to complete. I enjoyed being able to see the students’ personalities come through with the different aspects of each topic.

What my three children have learned as Youth Ambassadors for In a Perfect World has been the most impactful, formative, and character-building experiences of their lives. In a Perfect World has empowered them to discover the power within themselves to make positive changes in their community and in the world, and to lean forward, even as youth, as thought leaders and responsible humanitarians. These experiences have positively influenced the trajectory of their lives, and they will be change-makers, true leaders, and genuine givers because of In a Perfect World’s impartation of servant leadership.
