The Dream Summer program provides fellowship opportunities to immigrant youth and allies throughout the nation. Dream Summer participants will engage in social justice work and movement building by addressing the intersections of immigrant rights issues with queer and transgender communities, the Asian Pacific Islander community, mass incarceration and deportations perpetuated by the criminalization of people of color, and health care access for all.
Participants are placed in social justice organizations for 10 weeks. Dream Summer fellows work closely with their host organization to incorporate and strengthen the inclusion of undocumented immigrant issues onto the organization’s social justice work.
Dream Summer participants receive a $5,000 award for their completion and participation in the program.
