We have begun a new Refugee Mentoring Program. The vision is that the volunteer and matched refugee individual or family a couple times a month to work on English language skills (vocabulary and conversation) by fostering relationships between each other and within the community.  This may involve going to homes to help with English practice, showing them around the community (go with them to the bank or grocery shopping, go to parks or the library), or help with transportation to classes/events at the Refugee Dream Center.  The goal is to help show individuals how to become independent in their community while focusing on building key relationships.
