The Dream Summer program has provided over 500 fellowship opportunities to immigrant youth and allies throughout the nation. Dream Summer participants have engaged 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.

Since 2013, Dream Summer has included Healthy California as a special project. Fellows who participate in this project promote the right to health care access, regardless of immigration status. For more information on this cohort, visit Undocumented and Uninsured.

In 2015 we launched our first Labor Cohort as a way of addressing the intersectionality between US labor movement and immigrant issues. This year participants in the Labor Cohort will develop in-depth experience in corporate research, policy analysis, coalition building, curriculum development, strategic planning, and communications. For more information on this cohort, please email us or check out our videos from last year.

Participants are placed in social justice organizations for 10 weeks for additional training. 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 fellowship for their participation in the program.
