Help Transform Life for Refugees
It takes a village. And for America’s refugee youth, the challenges of integration are numerous and enormous. But together, we can bring back hope.
Our work & Impact
Georgia accepts 3,000 refugees each year, the majority of whom settle in Clarkston--a town of 1.5 square miles--making this the most diverse square mile in America and the “Ellis Island of the South”. The challenges to integration are enormous, but we offer hope and a warm welcome to refugee youth by offering community, mentorship, and developmental support.
What We Do
Camping trips, football games, and movie nights. We provide cultural trips and events for refugee youth who might otherwise never experience these activities that often embody the American experience.
We host weekly programs, like Friday Night Light, to provide food, fun, and community in a safe environment. For many of our kids, this is their only social activity of the week.
Friendship & Mentorship
We make sure every youth is known and welcomed. We provide mentorship opportunities with adult volunteers, as well as community groups where kids can befriend other kids in their age group.
To help the youth succeed in life, we provide after school tutoring, college prep counseling, career counseling, emergency food services, and counseling.
