College 101 Workshops for Undocumented Students:
Given the significant cost difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition, as well as the fact that undocumented students are not eligible for federal financial aid, college is simply out of reach for many undocumented youth. DreamActivist PA provide workshops where they show undocumented youth how to apply for college and continue their education. They provide them with the necessary tools and encouragement to achieve their goals of higher education. If you’d like DreamActivist PA to hold a College 101 Workshop in your school/organization, contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
