Keeping the Dream Alive Committee


The Keeping the Dream Alive Conference Committee is recruiting volunteers to plan and execute the October 2013 conference. If you are interested in helping undocumented students and their teachers/counselors/mentors learn to navigate the university system and you have knowledge or expertise in the areas listed below, they would love to have you get involved.

Because they are a working group, we ask for a commitment of approximately 4 hours a month (2 hours general and 2 hours involved in sub-committee). They also ask for participation at the conference. They are looking for both people to lead a subcommittee and for active members of sub-committees. Some sub-committees require active involvement during the earlier part of the planning stages and some during the later part.

Please contact Janice Downing at janice_downing@dpsk12.org to become involved. They will welcome all new volunteers at their next planning meeting on February 11, 2013 from 1 to 3 pm at Bruce Randolph School.
