The Orange County DREAM team to Present "Access to Higher Education" at the Buena Park Library

The Orange County DREAM Team (OCDT) will present "Access to Higher Education" at 2pm on Saturday, January 9, 2010, at the Buena Park Library, located at 7150 La Palma Ave., in Buena Park. The OC DREAM Team will discuss AB 540, which allows undocumented students of all nationalities (that meet specific requirements) to pay in-state tuition fees if they wish to attend California's public community colleges and universities. They will also provide information on the DREAM ACT.
This program is aimed at helping students complete high school and prepare for college or the workforce. It is made possible through a generous AT&T Foundation grant.

About the Orange County DREAM Team (OCDT)
The Orange County Dream Team (OCDT) was born out of a community's profound need to help its talented undocumented youth obtain access to higher education. Established in 2004, the OCDT began with a small but diverse group of high school, college and university students united under a common goal of passing the DREAM and Student Adjustment Acts.
At present time, the OCDT has grown into a dedicated Organization and has gained support from several community organizations such as Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, League of United Latin American Citizens, and Los Amigos de Orange County. We will continue to grow and strongly believe that all sectors of the Orange County Community will ultimately benefit from our accomplishments.
