Session Title: Foundational Training - Supporting Undocumented Students and Families in K-12
Audience: K-12 teachers, school staff, school administrators, social workers, counselors

Session Objectives:
Educators are often the first adults that children come to when searching for answers and support about their or their family's immigration status. While educators are not expected to know the specifics of immigration law, they should know basic rights that are available to all students regardless of their immigration status. In addition, educators must be aware of ways they can create safe classroom spaces through strategies and relevant curriculum. This training is intended for teachers and educators who work directly with students
Session Title: Elevating Students' Stories: Culturally Responsive Practices & Curriculum with Insight on Supporting Immigrant Students and Families
Audience: K-12 teachers, teacher support staff, and school administrators

Session Objectives:
Through dynamic, hands-on, and student-centered trainings, educators and school leaders will be equipped with classroom strategies and best practices in order to effectively implement immigrant-focused curriculum and texts. This training is aimed to increase the capacity of educators while supporting their efforts in fostering an inclusive and safe classroom culture.
Session Title: College Access for Undocumented Students
Audience: College advisors, high school counselors, 9-12 teachers, school support staff

Session Objectives:
Every year, approximately 98,000 undocumented students graduate from high school, yet only 5-10% of them go onto college. High school counselors and educators can play an important role in providing resources and guidance on the college admission process and financial aid for undocumented students. This session supports educators in building knowledge and skills in order to effectively support immigrant students through the college-admissions process.
Session Title: Creating a Safe School Environment for Undocumented Students and Families
Audience: School staff, secretaries, front-office staff, social workers, parent family liaisons, school support staff, school operations staff, custodians, school Resource Officers

Session Objectives:
School staff play a key role in creating a welcoming culture for all students and families in our schools. Given the complexities of creating a safe and welcoming environment for undocumented students and families, schools staff must have concrete tools and practices to engage with undocumented students, parents, and immigration officials.
