What We Do (Mission)
The Center for Advancing the American Dream was founded by philanthropist Michael Milken. It is supported by people who believe anyone with a dream, and the drive to achieve it, should have the opportunity to make it come true—through good health, good education, and an economic system that works for all.
Building the Life You Want to Live
The ideal at the heart of the American Dream speaks to the aspirations of people everywhere: no matter who you are or where you come from, you should have the opportunity to build the life you want to live.
Our purpose is to make the American Dream attainable for all; our focus is on expanding access to the Four Pillars that turn the Dream into reality:
Education and job training
An entrepreneurial mindset
