The 3rd Annual My Dream Speaks benefit event is coming to New York City where Global Language Project will honor the French Embassy and Government and Nickelodeon Networks at the Times Center. This event is slated to take place on Monday June 2, from 6:30PM - 9:30PM.
My Dream Speaks is a lively, annual fundraiser that attracts VIPs to witness the life changing impact of the Global Language Project foreign language programs. GLP provides disadvantaged elementary public school students language learning in Arabic, French, Mandarin and Spanish. The service is provided, free of charge, to immerse them in another culture and language in their childhood, which will benefit them in the future academically and professionally. MDS is the primary fundraising event that allows Global Language Project to complete its mission of equipping young children with language skills - once thought to be a luxury - that are now necessary to compete in a global workforce and survive high unemployment rates.
In addition to bestowing the 2014 My Dream Speaks awards to supportive honorees such as the French Ambassador, the event will feature a silent auction and a performance by the children enrolled in the Global Language Project program.
