It’s amazing to see the class sizes at the Arte Suave / DreamRoot Training Center in Paulista, Brazil!!

It wasn’t too long ago that this jiu-jitsu initiative began with a small group training jiu-jitsu on cardboard boxes. To see how many people have been and are being positively impacted by this training center is incredible. Thank you to all the local leaders and supporters involved in making this possible!!

Leadership & Jiu Jitsu

Leadership is not comfortable.

Jiu-jitsu & leadership go hand-in-hand because in order to thrive in either one, you must learn to be comfortable in the uncomfortable. Discomfort is where growth and personal development happens. Local leaders @davi_elem and @erick.franklin09 are running some great classes in São José de Tapera and are giving the children in their community an oppurtunity to seek personal growth on and off the mats. We're proud to support jiu-jitsu initiative because of the impact that the sport and great communty has on people. It's so great to see clips or the classes and to see everyone working hard on the mats!

Davi Elem runs a jiu-jitsu social initiative out of São Josė de Tapera. Here are some clips of his students sparring and working on their takedowns. Jiu-jitsu is not only a great workout for these kids, it's also a place and activity where they can be in community and experience healthy mentorship. We are thrilled to see these kids working hard and having fun!

São José de Tapera update: The building has a strong foundation thanks to the incredible work of the local leaders and the donations provided by all of you! It's great to see progress on the building but even better to see the local leaders come together and make change happen. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication! We are one step closer to providing this gathering place and resource center for the local community.

DreamRoot Local leader and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Jesse Hall recently coached his students at a local competition in Northeast Brazil. It's great to see his students challenging themselves in the jiu jitsu competition scene. These events require hard work and focus.

Leading on the jiu jitsu mats is no different than leading anywhere else in life. The role of a leader is to create an enviornment that faciliates their team's growth and provide a platform for others to contribute their own talents. Jesse constantly models this. He is a transformative mentore to those around him.

We are proud of Professor Jesse and his students - parabéns!!!

Today marks the second-year anniversary of DreamRoot Leadership Institute!

We started with a vision of partnering with those who are standing in the gap for the vulnerable who are falling through the cracks in society. These unsung heroes are local leaders running humble social initiatives in underserved communities that are overrun by poverty, violence, and oppression.

A pillar of our guiding philosophy is a belief that people are transformed through relationships. By consistently showing up for others week after week, DreamRoot local leaders are saving lives, setting youth on a path toward success, and raising up new leaders who are transforming their own families and communities.

Through your support over these past two years, DreamRoot is partnering with 12 local leaders to oversee social initiatives for underprivileged individuals in 8 communities impacting over 900 students.

These two years have been foundation setting. There is more work to be done and we are just getting started. We want to celebrate this 2 year milestone by saying THANK YOU to all our supporters. We are endlessly grateful for you and we look forward to a continued partnership in this mission in the many years to come.

Regina is a student at the DreamRoot / Arte Suave Training Center and recent college graduate with a degree in Nutrition. She now works as a nutritionist and helps fellow students adapt a healthier lifestyle.

DreamRoot training centers are incubators and launching pads for individuals within the local community to exercise their gifts and pursue their dreams while giving back to the community. We are thrilled to see Regina exercising her passion for nutrition and giving back to the community by working one-on-one with locals.

The multiplication of local leadership results in a greater community impact. Great job Regina, Jhon and the entire DreamRoot / Arte Suave team!

Thank You DreamRoot

Sertão local leader Davi Elem has started to learn English and sent this amazing video to the DreamRoot team and our supporters. It's awesome to see him putting in the effort to learn a new language and to do it on camera is inspiring!

Leadership often requires us to push ourselves and to do things that are uncomfortable at the start but pay off tremendously in the end. DreamRoot local leaders are constantly refining their skills and innovating new ways to better serve their community. We are very proud of Davi for pushing himself to learn a new language!

Local leaders Jhon, his wife Eneide, and the students at the Arte Suave / Dreamroot training center put together some amazing care packages for their local community! These packages were filled with food and personal hygiene products to help people who have lost their jobs during COVID.

Communities such as these in Paulista, Brazil have limited social programs and government help. These communities rely on the help of their neighbors and non-profits. It's great seeing local leaders shine in these moments and help so many people!

Davi and his wife, Ingrid, host a monthly birthday party for the kids with birthdays during that month. This location is also where Davi runs a jiu jitsu social project and together they host art classes for the kids in their community.

This community setting and the social projects give the kids an opportunity for education and extra curricular activities that teach life skills, character development, and offer healthy mentorship.

Davi and Ingrid are a power couple out of Sertão and are making an incredible impact!

Our friends and local leaders in São José de Tapera, Brazil have made incredible progress on the construction of the Sertão training center! The building now has a foundational structure with the addition of walls and roofing.

The construction of the building has allowed many members of the community to acquire employment and gain work experience. Once completed, the training center will serve as a gathering place for the community where local leaders can expand upon their social initiatives to develop young emerging leaders.

We look forward to the next few months as development of this training center nears completion!

As One Individual Rises, We All Rise

Dreamroot is a global initiative that serves to equip leaders in underserved communities to transform their own lives, their communities and generation to come.

Many people around the world, due to the consequences of poverty and broken systems, have been unable to realize their dreams. Being stunted and paralyzed by their current situations, their lives are a struggle just to survive. Consequently, their dreams become forgotten or buried. But when given the permission to dream again, coupled with training and a conducive environment, amazing things begin to happen. This is where Dreamroot comes in. We are catalyzing dreams, unleashing potential, and accelerating transformation, one leader at a time.

DreamRoot works to combat poverty, underdevelopment and the travesties that come with it by collaborating with a network of partners and local leaders. We come along side with those in under-resourced communities who are working to effect change by serving their neighborhoods and cities through social initiatives like sports programs, after school tutoring and college prep, the arts, music, life skills classes, and coming up with solutions to meet dire basic needs.

We help to equip these proven local leaders by offering further leadership training from a dedicated team of coaches. They learn the hard and soft skills required to successfully launch and run a social initiative whether it be a volunteer outreach program or a social business as an entrepreneur. DreamRoot collaborates with trained and vetted local leaders on the design, implementation and running of their social initiatives. They have access to a DreamRoot support network and mentors and are also eligible to receive seed investment and sponsorship.
