“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. “
Henry David Thoreau
Celebrate the dreams and successes of the Project Morry community by joining us for Dare to Dream 2017. All proceeds support Project Morry’s year round programming which seeks to close the opportunity gap by offering students a combination of academic enrichment and support, exceptional summer camp experiences, and one-on-one mentoring.
Wednesday April 19th at 7pm
226 East 54th Street NYC
Project Morry helps our kids envision a world in which anything is possible and empowers them with the tools to make their dreams happen. In April students review Project Morry’s mission and are asked how they have exemplified our principles of teamwork, leadership, network of support, positive core values, self esteem, and personal responsibility. Your support puts our mission into action.
A completely volunteer driven event, Dare to Dream is a great way to learn more about Project Morry and to introduce the next generation of mentors and friends to the Project Morry community. Our 2016 event was attended by over 200 guests and raised almost $25,000. Help us come together to make Dare to Dream 2017 even more successful!
Project Morry thanks our generous Dare to Dream 2017 sponsors.

“Project Morry is more than just a place. It’s a community.”
Michelle, Project Morry Alum
Thanks to the generosity of those who believe in Project Morry, in 2016 400 young people from seven communities in New York City, Westchester, Long Island, and Connecticut participated in our nationally recognized year round program and attended summer camp. We celebrated the graduation of 80 high school seniors and welcomed 30 new 10 and 11 year olds to their first summer at camp.
Project Morry is a transformational experience for our youth. It becomes a home away from home where participants are encouraged to dream and take on challenges. Project Morry empowers young people, many with hectic lives and limited options for their future, with the support of a community that believes in their potential and is invested in their success. Over their nine year participation, we help them develop strengths, find their moral compass, and grow into confident, caring adults who enrich their own communities with their contributions.
“Project Morry showed me that no matter where I come from, my destination relies on me and my choices, and the choices I made were direct reflections of never wanting to let down the people who saw what I couldn’t see in myself.”
Siara, Project Morry Alum
