Event description

Description

Event Details:

Join the UA Immigrant Student Resource Center & ScholarshipsA-Z for a day filled with training that centers the needs of students and families from immigrant and refugee backgrounds. Throughout the conference, you'll acquire the tools needed to better prepare, protect, and support students. All attendees will learn ways to provide resources to undocumented, DACA, refugee, and TPS youth; and learn how to better serve as an accomplice to these student populations and their families.

At this year's conference, attendees can self-select from two tracks based on what you know and what you want to learn.

  1. Track 1 - First-time attendees - You'll find our intro sessions most useful so you can learn important terminology, policies, and best practices being implemented by educators working with and for undocumented students. This is recommended for participants who NEVER attended a training or conference led by SA-Z or ISRC.

  2. Track 2 - Returners - Recommended for participants who attended a training or conference led by SA-Z or ISRC. Participate in sessions that give you space to turn ideas into actions. Sessions will focus on developing Rapid Response plans in schools, creating clubs with and for undocumented students, creating scholarships and more.
