The Miramar College Dreamers Support Office produces many workshops and events to both inform and entertain our students. Students and their families learn of the many supports available to them during our events from financial aid and scholarship resources to interactive workshops related to income generating opportunities. We also encourage student-to-student and student-to-staff connections through our more engaging activities like Coffee & Crafts, an interactive arts and crafts workshop, and Undocu-Ally Training, where faculty, staff, and students can learn how to be an ally to the undocumented community. We work closely with other service departments to curate these events and workshops, and we also highlight important webinars that our community partners host like Know Your Rights, DACA Updates, and more!
Our events are always FREE and open to all students. Some events may require pre-registration. Family members are encouraged to attend virtual workshops with their students!
Coffee & Crafts
Alternating Wednesdays from 12–2pm, Jet Fuel Resource Center, K1-211
Join the Miramar Dream Team for Coffee & Crafts, an interactive arts and crafts workshop in the Jet’s Refuel Center. On alternating Wednesdays, students are invited to grab a cup of coffee (or tea or hot cocoa), a small snack, and can participate in a guided art or crafting activity with fellow students. This is a great opportunity to explore your creative side, make new friends (or see old ones for returning crafters), and take a needed break from classes.
