Dream Academy - Founder Jalee Fuselier


Dream Academy was founded by Jalee Fuselier in 2005. We meet once a week on the Northshore of Oahu, Hawaii. This organization is helping our state’s children achieve their dreams. Through academic, social, and values enrichment, we empower children to believe in themselves and to succeed.


Through our innovative afterschool and mentoring program, we are transforming children into dreamers who envision and realize their potential. Dream academy addresses the urgent needs of children through promoting literacy, self- expression, and positive role models. High school volunteers and children are paired together for reading and activities. Having one person care for them on a personal level holds immeasurable worth in the life of a child.


Our dream is to ensure that all children, no matter their start in life, can pursue their own special dreams.




“Helping out with Dream Academy has really helped me to prepare for the real world. I’ve learned to be more responsible and to be prepared to work with whatever I’m being faced with. I also learned about patience when dealing with anything in life.”
