Dream Catchers aims to spread awareness about the DACA program and the many challenges students and professionals face trying to fulfill their academic and professional goals while under the program. Hundreds of thousands of individuals are part of the program, often times unbeknownst to friends/colleagues. The goal is to create a "students-funding-students" nation-wide through which Dream Catchers will encourage conversations and inform on the DACA program and what it means.
The way many scholarships and employers vet citizenship for qualification purposes leave DACA recipients falling through the cracks. This often means they often face higher (out of state) tuition despite residence location and not being hired for a technicality unaccounted for. Dream Catchers helps facilitate access to scholarships and meets with HR departments across industries to inform on hiring practices and the capabilities of DACA employees.
