Sharing the Dream Conference
Illinois Association for College Admissions Counseling

Sharing the Dream

Sharing the Dream 2017

Wednesday, May 17, 2017
7:30 am – 3:30 pm

University of St. Francis
Joliet, Illinois
Join others as we continue the conversation and momentum from 2016 for our 3rd annual Sharing the Dream conference.  This is a day designed to help educators learn how they can support undocumented students on the path to a college degree and beyond.
This workshop is for teachers, counselors, school administrators, college student personnel, admission representatives, counseling and higher education graduate students, and other allies.
Thirteen thousand undocumented students graduate yearly from Illinois high schools. Fewer than half of undocumented young adults ages 18-24 with a high school degree have attended any college and fewer than 10% will enroll in college immediately upon graduation from high school.
