DANIEL C. BRADLEY
Influencer. Nonprofit Strategist. Youth Advocate.
Daniel Bradley is the CEO and Co-Founder of Dreams Work, Inc., a cutting-edge non-profit organization designed to equip youth to face critical social issues plaguing their communities. Using the fine arts as a vehicle for change, Dreams Work strives to meet the pressing needs of youth and communities that have been overlooked and underserved. Like the examples of many legendary performers and change agents, Dreams Work prepares students to become “artistic activists.”
Bradley’s mission is to inspire, uplift, and encourage those in his path to commit to living the “Greater Good Life.” A fervent organizer and proven intervention strategist, he works tirelessly to create and implement measurable, life-changing initiatives that impart necessary life skills, arming participants with a toolkit for personal success.
Daniel credits song lyrics often recited by his Grandmother as the catalyst for his work:
“If I can help somebody, as I pass along…Then my living shall not be in vain.”
In 2009, Mr. Bradley was elected to the Board of Directors of the National Voting Rights Museum, in Selma, Alabama as the youngest member. He remains actively involved in many programs – both local and national – that serve under-privileged youth and families.
Inspired greatly by African-American sociologist Harry Edwards, Ph.D., Daniel created dream Maker Media LLC. Through this, he supplies job opportunities for high school and college students as well as consulting for start-up brands and special initiatives with clear social impact. As a Life Stylist, Bradley also offers services to entrepreneurs and achievers. dream Maker is patterned after Edwards’ pedagogy of teaching people to “dream with their eyes open.” The company specializes in creating platforms and providing resources that both encourage and prepare people to follow their dreams.
Mr. Bradley has traveled extensively throughout the United States, the U.K. and the Virgin Islands to facilitate training sessions in youth development strategies. Daniel has more than 10 years of experience in youth development and community organizing. Daniel studied Urban Analysis and Community Development at Georgetown University and is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies at Lancaster Bible College.
