Summit: Target 2020 California
The students at De Anza college are empowered to continue their education but students whose status is “undocumented” have particular issues with success that other students do not have. Institutional Aid for Undocumented Students will provide tools to create a sustainable future for all. It will give undocumented students that face both financial challenges and emotional stress the support they need by giving them a place where they can go talk to someone, print their papers, use the internet, gain moral support with fellow peers who understand how it is to be an undocumented student. This will be a place where they can also go to get scholarship information, ask questions and gain answers that will help them navigate the California higher education system.
