Q: You call your students “Dreamers.” Is this related at all to the DREAM Act? Does this mean your students are undocumented?

Our Founder Eugene M. Lang decided to call the first students he worked with “Dreamers,” to embody the hope and aspirations of this generation and emphasize the importance of creating opportunities for all children, regardless of socioeconomic status. While the DREAM act has led to the rise of another type of DREAMer over recent years, this is coincidental. While some of our students do have DACA status, this is not the case for all of our Dreamers.
