The Dreamer Fund team offers mentorship to high school and undergraduate students through the "Dreamer 2 Dreamer" program.
Our program pairs a mentee with a mentor based on needs, similarities, background, and career aspirations. Our goal is to provide a safe space, support, guidance, educational advice, development skills, networking, and leadership, as a way to foster positive and transformative experiences for mentees.
To apply for the "Dreamer 2 Dreamer" program, submit a cover letter AND either a resume or 1-page essay about yourself and your life story to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will review applications on a rolling basis and pair students with mentors as applications come in. As soon as we have a match, we will notify the student and mentor via email to make the introduction.
If you are not located in the Bay Area, you can still apply. We offer our mentorship program via teleconferencing, skype, and other modes of communication.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS WORKSHOPS
The Dreamer Fund offers Know Your Rights Workshops free of charge to community members, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, businesses, local unions & students.
With increased ICE activity in California, we want to support our community by preparing you for a potential ICE encounter. These workshops are beneficial for those who want to know what rights they have in their home if ICE shows up, but also for employers who want to know what rights they have in protecting their employees.
We have a top-notch team of law students, recent law graduates, and attorneys who are able to assist in these community workshops.
