To encourage AB-540 students to pursue post-secondary education goals.
To improve retention among AB-540 / DACA / DREAMers in college.
Who are we?
Accomplish the Dream Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization instituted to increase college and university retention among DREAMers in California. Our plan is to provide initial financial support and assist students throughout their four years of higher education. As college students ourselves, we understand that college may appear very challenging at times. Therefore, our purpose is to serve our students as mentors to whom they can reach out for advice and assistance throughout their college career.
