Events & Workshops

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!

Miramar College is one of these schools, but we know many of our students will go on to transfer to a four-year university.

Community Partner Workshops

Our legal aid partners at the Higher Education Legal Services, JFSSD, provide presentations on various immigration topics such as Know Your Rights, Family Preparedness, Naturalization: How to Become a US Citizen, DACA Updates, Immigration 101: Possible Forms of Relief, and Public Charge Updates. The goal is to educate and empower the community to know how to react in case of any encounters with immigration authorities, learn how to exercise their rights and stay up to date with the rapid changing immigration policies to avoid fraud.
