This summer, Education for Everyone team had an amazing opportunity to collaborate with Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Service ( @irisct_ ) based in New Haven, Connecticut. Our team was able to provide complete school supplies for 50 refugee students to assure they are in the best position to have a successful start to the new school year. We want to thank IRIS for their continuing efforts to support the refugee communities in CT and we look forward to collaborate with them in the future.
Career Night – Parents and Youth Workshop
Repost from DAHyouth:
“Hosted by @educationforeveryoneinc, This workshop catered to both parents and youth. From talking about topics from bonding to fortnite, parents walked out of this workshop with renewed intentions and a prospect on how to better their relationships with their kids. On the other hand, this workshop empowered our mentees beyond words could explain. Through series of contests, our youth broke out of their shells and had a boost of self esteem while learning the beauty of teamwork and perseverance. Finally, this was a great bonding experience for parents, mentees, and mentors! We look forward to more events like this.”
Back to School Event (2018)
World Refugee Day Community Resource Fair
Education for Everyone Team was one of the vendors at the World Refugee Day Community Resources Fair organized by ReEstablish Richmond. We had an opportunity to interact with over 500 refugees located in the city of Richmond. Along with raising awareness for our cause, we were able to interact, address questions and provide key education information to the local refugees. Our team plans to keep in touch with these families and focus on facilitating to all of their academic needs.
Book Bag Event (2018) – Richmond, Va
We collaborated with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) team for a book bag event in April 2018. Along with providing books and supplies, we were able to raise awareness regarding the importance of parent’s involvement in child’s education. Going forward, we hope to provide aid in the social and academic transition of child refugees into the public-school system. Further, we are working with the families to raise awareness about the U.S. educational system.
