What is Dream Summer? Dream Summer is an annual fellowship of the UCLA Labor Center’s Dream Resource Center (DRC) that empowers immigrant youth and allies to be the next generation of social justice leaders through leadership and professional development, movement building, and on-the-ground experience in social justice organizations. During the summer, fellows are placed within social justice-based host organizations and work closely with their host organization to incorporate and strengthen the role of immigrant rights issues alongside the organization’s social justice work. Are you interested in becoming a Dream Summer 2021 fellow? Dream Summer 2021 is open to both experienced social justice leaders and those who wish to begin or strengthen their involvement in social justice. Dream Summer fellows receive a $5,000 fellowship award, leadership, and professional development training, and become part of a national alumni network of over 750 immigrant rights leaders.
