Flood the Hood with Dreams, the morning assembly and afternoon community event hosted by Milwaukee College Prep on Thursday, October 13, will recognize the positive change agents in our community. In stark contrast to this summer’s unrest, Milwaukee College Prep, along with community partners, will celebrate the beauty and goodness that exists in our neighborhoods.

“Every day at Milwaukee College Prep, we are blessed to see the hard work and enormous potential of children and families in our schools and neighborhoods. We thought it was high time to share that hopefulness with others,” explains CEO Robert Rauh.

Beginning at 9:30 a.m. there will be a four campus assembly for our 2,000+ scholars at MCP: Lloyd Street Campus. This event will feature Muhibb Dyer, a spoken word artist whose organization inspired the event, and Dr. Darienne Driver, MPS Superintendent, who shares our absolute belief that education is the prerequisite for hope and success and Craig Robinson, who as Milwaukee Bucks Vice President, Player and Organizational Development is charged with “equipping every member of the Bucks organization with the tools they need to find personal success beyond basketball.”

At 4:30 p.m. our scholars, families and community members will come together at our Lloyd Street Campus and be joined by:

  • Milwaukee police and firefighters
  • Brewers Racing Sausages
  • Bucks Dancers, Rim Rockers and Bango
  • Running Rebels
  • Walnut Way
  • YMCA
  • Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin
  • Safe and Sound

It will be a day of joyful proof that, together, we are an unstoppable force for good in our neighborhoods, schools, and playgrounds.
