The Dream Project Application Form
You want to bike the country? You've come to the right place!
The Dream Project is a nonprofit adventure-based fundraising organization for young adults on their way to becoming future philanthropists and community leaders. As a rider, you commit to a year a fundraising and hands-on volunteer work before ultimately biking across the country in the name of a local charity doing work in your neighborhood. Trips range from two weeks to two months in length.
The circumstances of this global pandemic are challenging us to think differently about what our 2020-2021 season will look like, but our commitment to fostering leadership through service, philanthropy, and cycling remains steadfast.
That being said, we’re opening applications to join the Dream Team for this year. Participants will have a lower fundraising minimum and extended deadline in order to ensure everyone meets their goals. This semester will feature virtual team meetings, volunteer opportunities, and fundraising challenges as we look to see what’s feasible for the summer months. Safety has and always will be our chief concern. The safety of the riders, homestay hosts, and charity partners is of ultimate importance over dollars raised, hours volunteered, or miles ridden.
We accept any rider between the ages of 18 through 25 at the start of the summer. In 2021, you’re eligible to ride if you were born between May 1, 1996 to May 1, 2003.
Each accepted applicant is expected to raise your fundraising minimum prior to departure on the summer rides. Riders will receive a comprehensive trip and fundraising guide upon acceptance to aid them in their training and fundraising efforts. All participants are required to raise the fundraising minimum. If a participant has not raised the money by the final deadline, they will not be able to ride with the group until The Dream Project has received the balance. If a participant chooses to drop out of the program or fails to raise the fundraising minimum, they will donate any raised funds to The Dream Project.
Beyond this application, we'll need from you:
1. Your personal bio and photo for your fundraising page
2. A $100 application fee that will kickstart your fundraising (you can either donate this money yourself or fundraise for it)
3. A signed trip guide agreement and liability waiver
4. Medical history (plus you will eventually need to provide health insurance verification and a medical examination)
