DREAMERs & the Arizona Dream Act Coalition are partnering up for a study abroad opportunity!
5 Brookdale Community College students will participate in the Summer of Dreams 2022. The program is among only two in the country that provides the opportunity to travel abroad for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)* recipients under advance parole.
During their time in Mexico, students will be conducting ethnographic research on their family origins in addition to immersive language & cultural classes. Research findings will be published and provide human stories to script narratives for documentaries and academic presentations. This unique study abroad opportunity will allow students to reunite with their families after 10+ years.
The cost of the trip is $3,575 per student. 100% of funds will go towards covering trip expenses.
*(DACA is an administrative relief that protects immigrant youth who came to the United States when they were children from deportation).
