The "I Have A Dream" Foundation - Fort Worth hosted the 8th Annual Dreamer Conference on the campus of the University of North Texas from July 23 - 26, 2009. Approximately 80 Dreamers and staff from 20 programs in eight states and Washington, D.C. converged this year.

This national conference offered students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to cultivate strong leadership skills, share diverse experiences, and forge close, personal connections with fellow Dreamers from across the country. Not only did the conference serve as a uniting force in propelling Dreamers toward the goal of post-secondary education, but program staff, Sponsors, and volunteers engaged Dreamers in a series of workshops to build the social, academic, and professional skills needed to succeed in college and beyond.

The 9th Annual Dreamer Conference took place at Rutgers University in July 2010.
