The UCLA Labor Center recently announced this year’s Dream Summer Fellowship. Participants are placed in social justice organizations for 10 weeks 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. This opportunity is open to undocumented immigrant youth and allies.

Fellows are placed into one of four following cohorts:

  • The Undocumented Justice Cohort, placing a high emphasis on the safety of immigrant communities and the development of a national support network.
  • The Labor Cohort, addressing the intersectional presence of immigrant workers in the local and national labor movement.
  • The Silicon Valley Cohort, which will engage participants to develop institutional and community resources that reflect the participation of immigrant youth in the economic workforce development of Silicon Valley.
  • The Unaccompanied Minors Cohort, specifically aiming to provide leadership development to youth who independently migrated to the United States and place them in a position to support their local communities.

To learn more about this opportunity and to apply, please visit their official website: 2017 Dream Summer Fellowship

The deadline to apply is March 10, 2017
