Each year, the UCLA Labor Center hosts the Dream Summer, which is a fellowship program that seeks to empower immigrant youth to become the next generation of social justice leaders, create safe and healing spaces for immigrant youth, and promote an intersectional, cross-racial, and multi-generational approach to social justice. Participants are placed in social justice organizations for 10 weeks and work closely with their host organization to incorporate and strengthen the inclusion of undocumented immigrant issues in conjunction with the organization’s social justice work. Dream Summer participants receive a $5,000 leadership award.
Here are the eligibility requirements: “Dream Summer 2022 is open to both experienced social justice leaders and those who wish to begin or strengthen their involvement in social justice. The fellowship is open to all immigrant youth, regardless of immigration status (undocumented youth, youth with DACA or TPS, etc. are all welcome to apply). Applicants do not need to be students at UCLA or any college to qualify for the fellowship.”
The deadline to apply is 12pm PST on February 11, 2022
For more information and to apply, please visit their official website: Dream Summer 2022
