Becoming a Reality

We are all here for a purpose and we all have a piece to this puzzle we call life. A Dream in You Foundation is dedicated to see the youth use their individual capabilities to make a profound difference in the
world today.

There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.

Meet the Chief Dreamer


My name is Elexus Alford-Thompson and I am the proud Founder and Chief Dreamer of A Dream in You Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. In establishing this influential foundation, I have been blessed with the privilege and opportunity to live out my dreams of inspiring, motivating, and educating the youth of Tri-County Charleston, South Carolina.


Seeking to provide area young people an opportunity to live out their dreams and actively plan for a meaningful future, we have coordinated and implemented thought provoking and engaging workshops and seminars to assist in making their journey to success easier to traverse. As a Certified Life Coach, Certified Credit Coach, Financial Literacy Coach, and Licensed Realtor, I am dedicated to seeing others, especially our youth, win in every way imaginable. Education and motivation are the tools that I’ve used in helping others succeed and they are the pillars that A Dream in You Foundation were built upon.


I believe everyone has a dream and every dream is fully attainable – with hard work, perseverance, support, and sound judgement. I am inspired to use A Dream in You Foundation as the perfect resource for every tool needed to realize a phenomenal future in which every individual is operating at their fullest potential. It is my hope that volunteers and sponsors will continue investing in our dream to be a beacon of hope for our young people.
