Several English as a New Language students from Babylon Junior-Senior High School recently attended a field trip to the fifth annual Long Island Dreamers’ Conference held at Suffolk County Community College on Nov. 2.

While attending, the students attended workshops pertaining to rights of immigrant students, college and career readiness, stress management, and became familiar with the college application process. Additionally, all five student-attendees decided to become members of Long Island Immigrant Student Advocates, an organization which provides community service and networking opportunities, as well as scholarship opportunities to those interested in joining.

“Our ENL students returned to school with hope and were genuinely excited about these opportunities,” said District Director of World Languages Michelle Scharff.
