The College Access Program is run by students, for students! We know that all students find the college process confusing but it is especially difficult if you are undocumented or the first person in your family to go to school.
How Can We Work Together?
Information & Resources: There are many resources on this website and others, check them out! If you have any questions contact our College Access Team!
Mentorship & Connections: We are an organization led by undocumented students, for undocumented students. Many of our leaders have been through the college process and would be happy to talk about it with you! We can set up a time for you to meet with us or you are welcome to attend one of our meetings/ events to meet other students! Reach out to our College Access Team to get connected!
Individual Meetings: We will come to you to talk more about your specific path to college! Tell us where you want to meet us and we will work around your schedule to set something up so we can talk face to face! Contact our College Access Team to set up a meeting.
Join the Fight: Our mission is to fight for the rights of undocumented youth and their families. You can be a part of that fight! Come to one of our meetings or events and join other students and members of the community as we work together to make sure that immigration status is not a barrier in any aspect of life. Check out our Facebook and Upcoming Events Section of our website to find out about upcoming events or contact our College Access Team and they can let you know what’s coming up!
