The DREAM Educational Empowerment Program (DEEP), a project of United We Dream, is designed to address the barriers that undocumented immigrant youth face as they pursue higher education. DEEP builds strategically aligned collaborations between United We Dream affiliates, K-12 educators, community college and university representatives, and community-based organizations and leaders to create pipelines to higher education for undocumented youth. DEEP works with immigrant youth and their parents and teachers to improve educational access and outcomes for immigrant youth across the country through coaching, training, outreach programs and community collaborations.
Since the announcement of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), DEEP has prioritized ensuring that no DREAMer is left behind as it relates to the educational requirements for DACA. In addition to ongoing advocacy around educational access and opportunity, DEEP will develop and distribute educational materials, hold webinars, and establish DEEP/DREAM centers throughout the nation to make sure every DACA-eligible DREAMer can obtain a GED or otherwise meet the educational requirements of the deferred action policy.Learn more about DEEP click here to download the DEEP informational brochure.
