What is Dream Summer?
Dream Summer is a national fellowship, of the UCLA Dream Resource Center (DRC), that empowers immigrant youth and allies 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. During the summer, fellows are placed within social justice-based host organizations and work closely with their host organization to incorporate and strengthen the role of immigrant rights issues alongside the organization’s social justice work.
Are you interested in becoming a Dream Summer 2023 fellow?
Dream Summer 2023 is open to both experienced social justice leaders and those who wish to begin or strengthen their involvement in social justice. Dream Summer fellows receive a $5,000 fellowship award, leadership and professional development training, and become part of a national alumni network of over 900 immigrant rights leaders. 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 to qualify for the fellowship.
Are you interested in becoming a Dream Summer 2023 host organization?
For Dream Summer 2023, the DRC is seeking to partner with organizations that address issues intersecting with the experiences of immigrant youth such as educational access, health, labor, mass incarceration and deportation, and the unique experiences of Asian and Pacific Islander, Black, Muslim, and LGBTQ+ undocumented communities.
