We will discuss higher education and financial aid options for students that come from mixed-status families, highlight organizations to keep them connected, an overview of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and traveling, and reminding teachers that a social security number is not required to attend college.
We have heard over and over how undocumented students have been told by teachers or counselors that they will not be allowed to attend college if they lack a valid social security number. In the past few years, there has been a shift because the school personnel is becoming/staying informed about the options students have and because there are more and more undocumented students attending and graduating college. By teaching students how to advocate for themselves, i.e. knowing how and who to ask, letting them know they are not alone, and the options they have regardless of the path taken to finish school, we are creating a community were these same students return to inspire the ones that will follow.
