Collected Resources for AB 540 Students & Allies

One of the first things I started doing when I made the choice to go to school, trying to adjust my legal status and just generally looking for help and resources was to try and find them. Problem is they weren't around back then. Everyone was pretty much going off by the seat of their pants and making things happen as they went along. 10 years later and those paths and road that were paved through by first generation 'dreamers' are not only still around, but much more accessible.  Thus, I present you links to Educators for Fair Consideration. They have created a hand full of student, ally and parent resources that break down tons of resources for both undocumented folks and allies. there's a full run down of the various resources guides they provide.

The first is Student Guides. This page has guides that can be downloaded which includes:

The MALDEF scholarship guide 
Lucille Roybal-Allard scholarship guide as well

They also have guides and information to counselors, teachers and school administrators in order to be better able to help students. 

And of course a guide for parents on how to help their children succeed in school           one in English and another in Spanish
