VOICES OF IMMIGRANTS DEMONSTRATING ACHIEVEMENT
Founded in 2012, VIDA is a product of the hard work and dedication of previous generations of undocumented youth activists at City College. We are proud to be a part of the greater network of undocumented student resource centers located throughout the state of California. VIDA is a place of acceptance where students will find a sense of belonging, build community, and expand their network. We encourage open dialogue about citizenship status to create an empowering environment where undocumented students can achieve their educational goals!
Young Invincibles was founded by a group of students in the summer of 2009, motivated by the recognition that young people’s voices were not being heard in the debate over health care reform. We began providing the facts about barriers young adults face in affording quality health insurance and by asking our peers to share their stories. We believed in our generation’s capacity to stand up and make itself heard, and as our work expanded the opportunity became more apparent. It turned out young people had even more to share.
