- The Dream Project empowers students whose immigration status creates barriers to higher education. We start our program in high school and continue through college graduation into professional life. Students are supported through a strong network of mentoring, scholarships, and family engagement. Our start-up nonprofit has created an intentionally inclusive community where students are encouraged to use education as a vehicle to pursue their dreams and achieve their fullest potential.
