  • As times change, what previously was a ‘dialogue about race’ has evolved into a holistic approach to diversity in our community and beyond.

    One Columbus, has also evolved, strengthening its core mission: striving to inspire, motivate, promote diversity, and ensure that each member of the community is respected and valued. Recognizing and appreciating diversity is an obligation to which each of us must be committed. If we accept and act on this challenge, then Columbus will truly become a ‘One Columbus’.

Dare to Dream is an annual teen summit which gives local teens (high school sophomores and juniors) an opportunity to discuss diversity, race relations, community issues, leadership development and personal responsibility found in the life challenges teens face in their growing years.

Originally started in 1992 by Leadership Columbus, the program was adopted by One Columbus, Inc. in 2008 and is now a part of the organization’s regular Education Programming.
