Who Are U-Lead Students?
U-Lead students are current high school students and recent graduates from the Athens area who have varying immigration statuses: DACAmented, Temporary Protected Status (TPS), permanent resident, and first-generation citizens. All of them are extremely motivated and talented students who have grown up in immigrant families and are struggling to get into college despite anti-immigration laws and resolutions in the state of Georgia.
