At the heart of the Amway commitment of caring is the ONE BY ONE CAMPAIGN FOR CHILDREN®, created to help disadvantaged children around the world live, achieve, learn, and – of course – play. Since the program launched in 2003, we have partnered with employees and Amway Independent Business Owners to help more than 10 million children. Together, we’ve logged 2.7 million volunteer hours, and raised $190 million dollars for children’s causes worldwide.

This after-school program focuses on breaking the vicious cycle of incarceration by giving children of incarcerated parents the skills and vision necessary to lead productive and fulfilling lives.
Operating in 9 cities, the Dream Academy has already helped more than 6.500 young people to believe they can overcome their circumstances through building skills and dreaming big dreams. The program focuses on: skill building; character building; and dream building.
