Here's what they do:
An Overview of Our Work (E4FC)
We provide life-changing financial support that enables undocumented young people to overcome systemic barriers.
We develop partnerships with key educational institutions to enhance their support for undocumented students, and identify promising practices that will embolden other educational institutions.
We equip undocumented young people with the information and resources needed to navigate life, make informed decisions, and pursue educational and career goals.
We develop the leadership capacity of undocumented young people through career training, mentorship, professional development, and opportunities to educate and empower the undocumented community.
We train undocumented young people to reclaim and share personal stories in order to heal, strengthen community bonds, transform hearts and minds, and advance policy legislation.
