The purpose of this project was to write a grant to support the Napa Valley DREAM Team (NVDT) in its efforts to increase the academic achievement and personal growth of undocumented children and young adults in the area. An extensive literature review; consultation with key informants; and personal communication with undocumented youth, their families, and allies were used to create a comprehensive needs assessment.
Every year, tens of thousands of undocumented students graduate from high school, despite the social, economic, and legal challenges of their immigration status, with limited opportunities to participate fully in society. If funded, this program will support undocumented students who have the skills and aspirations to pursue a college education and achieve a more meaningful life, thus contributing to the economic and social well-being of the nation. Actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required for successful completion of this project.
