Transforming schools into safe havens for all students

Research shows that students’ sense of belonging improves academic outcomes, increases continuing enrollment in school, and is protective for mental health. However, for immigrant students, the perceived and real fear of losing their parents to deportation can have a detrimental impact in their well-being and academic success.

 

As former undocumented students, we know that when educators create a safe and supportive learning environment, the likelihood for success is greater. ImmSchools supports teachers and school leaders in cultivating a positive school culture and climate for all students, parents, and caregivers, regardless of immigration status.

ImmSchools programming is exclusively informed, designed, and facilitated by current or former immigrant educators, students and parents, elevating our leadership as true experts working in the intersection of education and immigration. Through this unique approach, our team translates the complexity of our immigration experiences into effective, intentional and research-based programming that leads to enduring change within schools. We invite you to partner with us!
