DREAM SUMMER FELLOWSHIP

Moving into its ninth year, Dream Summer has provided over 650 fellowship opportunities to immigrant youth and allies and has partnered with over 250 social justice organizations across the country. Dream Summer:

  • Empowers immigrant youth to be the next generation of social justice leaders through leadership and professional development, movement building, and on-the-ground experience in social justice organizations.
  • Creates safe and healing spaces for immigrant youth to connect and build with one another.
  • Promotes an intersectional, cross-racial, and intergenerational approach to social justice that addresses the needs of immigrant communities.

Participants are placed within social justice-based organizations and work closely with their host organization to incorporate and strengthen the role of immigrant issues alongside the organization’s social justice work. Over the summer, fellows engage and lead social justice efforts by aligning the call for immigrant rights issues alongside the unique challenges of queer and transgender communities, Asian and Pacific Islander communities, Black immigrant communities, the ongoing mass incarceration and criminalization of people of color, worker rights, and health care access for all.

Dream Summer fellows receive a $5,000 fellowship award for their participation in the program, leadership and professional development trainings, and become part of a national alumni network of over 650 immigrant rights leaders.
