Serving and Supporting Undocumented Youth
Presenter: Ann Marano, Executive Director at College That Change Lives

As higher education professionals we are serving undocumented students, self-identified and not, every day. Who are these young people? Do we have the knowledge and resources we need to appropriately support them? How are our institutions serving them? Given the national landscape and ongoing dialogue on immigration issues, what conversations might we find ourselves involved in? Which ones should we start? This webinar will begin to answer these questions. You will leave with a working knowledge of the challenges undocumented youth face, several best practices you can immediately use (including a personal action plan), and resources to help you connect with a network of support.
