Ford Driving Dreams values feedback that enhance the services of those impacted by our programs.

"As a person, I learned a lot about how important it is to help those in need. Had it not been for Waukegan to College, Ford Driving Dreams and LULAC to encourage me to volunteer, I think I would not have understood what it means to impact someone. I am thankful to LULAC and Ford Fund for this opportunity."

"I have been impacted by the LULAC organization in numerous ways, from participating in the Ford Driving Dreams program my senior year of high school, to actively being part of our LULAC adult council. I am living proof of the positive impact they have on students like myself who are first-generation and Latinx."

"LULAC and Ford Driving Dreams have given me a lot of hope and self-confidence. Going to college was my first plan. Now that teachers have spoken to me, they have shown me new doors to open. Now my dream is to become a doctor. LULAC will help my dreams become a reality."

"After participating in the program and attending the various field trips, a number of students have expressed their desire to attend college in the future. As one student noted after the Westwood College field trip “I went home and told my mom ‘I want to go to college!"

"The Ford Driving Dreams Grants program impacted me by providing the necessary resources throughout high school to pursue a higher education without having student loans. I am the youngest of three girls, and I am a first- generation college student. My single mother was always supportive of my dreams to travel and get a degree. That was all made possible with the assistance of programs such as this one."
