Building community

              shaping your future

Fellows are paired with local immigrant-serving community organizations and gain hands-on experience in direct services, advocacy, and immigration law careers while growing a network of mentors. Fellows receive professional mentorship and attend weekly enrichment seminars to support their growth as leaders and community advocates.
The DreamSF Fellowship is a paid San Francisco-based leadership and professional development program for immigrant students and recent graduates who seek to gain professional experience with social justice change-makers in the Bay Area.
I learned more about myself and I gained skills not just professionally, but also personally. I am now more aware of the impact I can make.

Nadia, DreamSF Fellow 2015

The DreamSF Fellowship really impacted me. It allowed me to connect with San Francisco’s immigrant communities and offer support. Not only was I getting an opportunity to understand myself as a professional, but the DreamSF Fellowship helped shape me for the next step of my professional career.
