What We Do

ABOUT US

Many international students don’t know where to turn with all the uncertainty surrounding immigration policy changes and deportation threats.

 

We are a non-profit organization that helps international students reach for the American dream by continually innovating in the US. We offer need-based financial assistance to qualifying students, plus legal counseling and volunteer opportunities, to gain work experience.
