I do this work because that's why were here, to help students be a success! ALL STUDENTS!
Ester Marquez Perez
24:33
As a first generation graduate navigating the education system was NOT easy and could only imagine how much harder it is for undocumented students. I'm an advocate of human rights education as well and believe education is a basic human right.
Rosa Hernandez
24:35
I do this work for my community, my family and to help others achieve their dreams! As a former EOPS student and 2nd gen American this is important work to me :)
Cesar Cervantes
24:37
I lack the knowledge to help these students and feel obligated to support undocumented students
Rocio Zamudio
24:41
Though I am not undocumented, my parents were lucky enough to come to this country through the bracero program that my grandparents were part of but I know so many others who aren’t so lucky
Sandra Galeas
24:43
I dedicate myself to this work for my community
Zoe Lozano
24:54
I just want to help students thrive and be excited for the future and not have to feel alone!
Lein Smith
25:15
I'm here because it's a blessing to see students who have barriers succeed! They need the programs that are here to serve our students move forward in life.
Edward Alvarez
25:16
I do this work because it impacts my familia, friends, and moreno valley/perris community!
Cristopher Briseno
25:21
I do this work because i myself was not aware of all the resources that were available to undocumented students. i wanna learn as much as possible to help others like myself succeed in life
Jose Alvarez Torres

I do assist undocumented students for many reasons. I was undocumented when I was attending CSU, Fresno campus. I know the struggle about being undocumented without resources at all.
Julie Scarpelli
25:28
I have a role on campus that is a "Gate Keeper" in Admissions & Records. I want to be a part of the team that is tearing down barriers for students and using my role to be an advocate.
Richard Garcia
25:48
I believe that Education is a human right. If we do not create equitable pathways that battle systematic barriers, then education becomes a privilege, not a right.
Elvira Covarrubias-Martinez
25:52
I am passionate about helping create a space where UndocuScholars and mixed-status students deserve high quality higher ed. support and educational experience. I also come from a mixed status family and that experience helps me connect with our UndocuScholars and mixed status students to provide the best service possible and encourage my co-workers to do the same.
Ana Ceballos
25:57
Just like Cyndi I was also a former undocumented student, I am thriven by my experience, the experience of others and the goal to empower students, their families and the community.

The Foundation completed a language survey a few months ago on this topic https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1D4_Uc1kb19GDuCXp9Kp9PyjBauSCysjDbq9ZGHHSWXw/edit?usp=sharing

@ Brenda - ITIN's can't be used to hire a person as an employee, but you can hire them as a Contractor. Immigrants Rising gives a better explanation. Check out their website.
