Improve The Dream is a youth-led organization that supports, empowers, and advocates for young immigrants, who have grown up in the United States as child dependents of visa holders, through engagement, education, resources, and research. Since 2017, we have been raising awareness for the over 200,000 Documented Dreamers who have face aging out of the immigration system. Our parents brought us here at an average age of 5, and we have been living here for an average time of over 12 years, but due to various issues in the immigration system, we don't have a clear path to citizenship. We are advocating for change that permanently ends "aging-out" and provides a path to citizenship for every child who grows up in the United States, regardless of status.
Vision: Everyone who grows up in the United States has a clear opportunity to become an American citizen, pursue their passions, and fully contribute to our country.
Mission: We strive to connect and strengthen a national community of young people to improve the journey in navigating the immigration system for themselves and their families, while advocating for a permanent end to aging-out policies.

Our advocacy community provides an opportunity to help raise awareness with others in a similar situation as yourself and also provide a platform to navigate the immigration system as a dependent or aged-out individual.
