This fall, the IRC in Atlanta is launching Connect to Success, an innovative new program to work with refugee youth and young adults who aren’t enrolled in school. The program will connect young people with opportunities and services to help them reach their educational, career and personal goals. Participants will receive ongoing case management, as well as career readiness and English classes. Through one-on-one work with program staff, participants will articulate their long-term goals and create a roadmap for reaching their dreams.
To be eligible for Connect to Success, you must be a refugee youth or young adult (age 16-24), not currently enrolled in school, and interested in advancing your education and/or career. For those interested in the program, the first step is to schedule a screening interview with IRC staff. To learn more, schedule a screening interview, or to refer clients, please contact Betsy Godfrey, Program Coordinator, at Betsy.Godfrey [at] Rescue.org, or Nai Oo, Career Readiness Coach, at Nai.Oo [at] Rescue.org.
