Dreamers RISE is a college readiness program created by Dreamers of Wisconsin for undocumented students interested in pursuing higher education. The program approaches college readiness with a complex immigration statuses lens, focusing on what it means to apply to college with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, Temporary Protective Status, and as an undocumented student.
Dreamers RISE provides a space for youth to build community, learn from peers, and connect with community members. Through these spaces, Dreamers RISE promotes self-expression, self-advocacy, educational advancement, and leadership development.
Applications are now closed.
