Dream Makers Health Career Programs

Health care providers must be compassionate, inclusive and curious. These traits start in youth and must be nurtured to thrive. So, we have teamed up with New Mexico school districts to help turn students' dreams into realities.

In the Dream Makers Health Careers Program, teens experience a variety of health professions through the lens of cultural awareness. At the same time, students build science, math and leadership skills that will help them graduate and go to college.
