Safe Summer Youth Extravaganza (SSYE) is the kick off of a Make Dallas One City collaborative effort to reduce youth poverty rates while promoting safety, education, employment, entrepreneurship, family and the Value of a Life.  The collaborative effort is between local non-profits, youth organizations, local small businesses, corporations and individuals who value our youth.

Safe Summer Youth Extravaganza is six weeks of excitement that will bring out multiple generations of family members in support of its youth. The event will serve as a fundraiser for MDOC and its partnering non-profits in order to continue the work and fulfill its mission of Making Dallas America’s Best City. By participating in the casino Olympiad night, spades and/or the dominoes tournament it will afford area youth organizations the opportunity to receive funding resources.  The first place finishers in each event will choose what organization they want to receive the resources allocated for that particular event.

Make Dallas One City (MDOC) goal for the youth of Dallas is to provide them with a world class youth multi-purpose arts, sports and training complex situated in the Southern Sector of Dallas. The complex will be called Dreamersville, housing an auditorium, restaurants, on site hotels, conference rooms, 30 basketball courts, 20 football fields and 20 soccer fields. The name Dreamersville on a daily basis will inspire them to dream and provide hope of a prosperous future thus ending generations of hopelessness. Dreamersville is also being constructed to meet the needs of youth that have traditionally been left out because of their geographical location, socioeconomic status and lack of representation.

One might ask why Dreamersville is so important and the answer is simple-Public Safety, specifically Life and Death. The city of Dallas, according to the Dallas Morning News, as of Nov. 27, 2018, has the third worst child poverty rate among major cities in America. The Dreamersville model unites a city through local servant minded individuals who have developed a relationship and earned the trust of the youth.

MDOC challenges you to get in the game of progress and unity or stay on the sideline of hatred and discord but either way Dallas will become America's Best City by becoming One City.
