At Educators For Fair Consideration we believe education is the key to personal transformation. The opportunity to learn, whether it is in a classroom, at a job site or in other forms, gives individuals agency to improve their own lives.
However, undocumented young people have limited access to professional development programs that offer hands-on experience while fostering community building and peer-support.
