Mission

Act on a Dream engages young people in ensuring equality for all immigrants.
Our focus is on providing immigrant youth with equal access to educational opportunities. We raise awareness of the unique challenges faced by our undocumented peers and provide resources to college campuses to better serve these students. Act on a Dream serves as advocate for immigrant youth, provides a channel for student views, and empowers the increasingly diverse millennial generation to take action.
