Refugee and other immigrant youth face significant challenges as they try to adapt to American culture, reestablish community and friendships, and adjust to new schooling and educational expectations.
These obstacles can be crippling. But they don’t have to be.
Providing Resources for Healthy Development
At World Relief, our desire is to see these youth and families flourish and reach their fullest potential, despite the early obstacles they face upon immigrating.
We work to facilitate the healthy integration of immigrant youth into life in the United States by connecting youth and their parents, teachers, and administrators with early childhood programming, summer camps, multilingual academic support, mentorship, mental health resources, and other community integration opportunities.
“World Relief always introduced me and other people to different friends. When somebody leaves their stuff to come help you out, it's really showing love, because not everybody can do that. To see that passion of helping people, I thought why not support that? Since it’s a mission that you want to see the world as a beautiful place, it is something that you want to put yourself in.”
- Alphonse, former WR Client and now mentor
