National Resources for Corps Members & Alumni

National Resources Available to Undocumented Students & Families

Given the populations we serve, which include youth in Latino and immigrant communities, it is likely that our corps members will find themselves teaching undocumented students. In addition, since teachers, after parents, play an important role in the lives of children, you may be in a position to help an undocumented student and we want you to understand how you can do that.

Understand current federal legislation that affect the undocumented community

In 2012, President Obama announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) which protects certain undocumented students from deportation and gives them the opportunity to obtain a two-year work permit.

However, DACA is considered a temporary solution to a much bigger issue. In December of 2012, TFA announced it's support for the passage of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM Ac), which will ensure that students brought to the U.S. as children are able to pursue an education without the threat of deportation, and have a pathway to fully participate in American society as citizens.
