Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals: One Student’s Story

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Philanthropy New York’s Education Working Group, in conjunction with the Donors’ Education Collaborative and the Fund for New Citizens at The New York Community Trust, held a recent briefing to bring greater clarity to New York City’s efforts to help eligible youth apply for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). One of our speakers at that briefing was Rafael Benitez, a student who decided to apply for DACA, and we’re very pleased to share his story on Smart Assets.
