The Sir Peter Blake Trust formed the Dream Team in 2012 with a daring dream to inspire at least 3000 kiwi kids in one hour during Leadership Week. After more than 230 leaders volunteered, some 10,000 young New Zealanders had face-to-face contact with a leader. Members of the Dream Team will spend one hour on Tuesday 9 July during Leadership Week inspiring a classroom of Kiwi kids to Dare, Dream and Do something across all of New Zealand.
