About the Allies

The Skyline College DREAM Center Allies are available to provide more information on immigration issues related to AB540, DACA, and the California Dream Act and how those issues may relate to documented and undocumented students and community members. In order to connect with a DREAM Center Ally, please stop by the DREAM Center, or connect via phone or email, with your issue, question or concern. A DREAM Center staff member will then be able to connect you with the Ally on campus who can best address your need.
