Open doors ofYour Future Opportunity

The Student Dreamers Alliance empowers youth to open doors of opportunity

SDA is for high school juniors & seniors

We aim to empower Hispanic youth to open doors of opportunity for themselves and for generations to come. Currently, the SDA program serves students in three high schools across the state of South Carolina:

  • Berea High School (Greenville)
  • Carolina High School (Greenville)
  • R.B. Stall High School (Charleston)

What is a

DREAMer?

DREAMers are Hispanic students who aspire for a brighter future for themselves, their families, and generations to come.

Dreamers are an asset to our country, and if given the opportunity, they will build stronger, inclusive, and thriving communities. We believe nothing should stand in the way of a college education—not the lack of financial aid, and not a student’s immigration status.
