Authentic Dreams Foundation is dedicated to working with youth to provide recreational and vocational opportunities, so they can live their best lives. Authentic Dreams, as its name implies, was established to highlight the positive avenues youth can take to create and live their authentic dreams.
We work with youth ages 3-17 to focus on all aspects of growth and child development - interpersonal, personal and socially. Our programs and efforts teach character development, personal fitness, and how to develop an effective work ethic in school and out of school. We teach our youth the importance of dreaming big, setting goals and the steps it takes to achieve goals.
We partner with local companies and organizations to give our youth the opportunity to network with individuals in all fields and sectors. Youth will learn about entrepreneurship, sports management, and sports broadcasting. Our youth will be paired with mentors as well.
Here at Authentic Dreams we have various programming including The Lil3 Basketball 3 on 3 tournaments. Youth can sign up around the country to participate in the basketball tournaments. TheLil3 Basketball 3 on 3 tournaments are modeled after Ice Cube’s Big 3 tournaments.
Other programs will include Lil3 Media where youth can learn how to produce sports shows. Youth will work with a mentor/teacher to learn all aspects of sports broadcasting, editing and producing shows. We will also have Lil3 Soccer, Lil3 Football and Lil3 Baseball.
Authentic Dreams was founded in 2014 by President/CEO Anthony Fuller in Detroit.
