Youth Programs

Our Mission

At Friends of Refugees, our mission is to empower refugees through opportunities that provide for their well-being, education, and employment.

Our programs help New American seize opportunities, while bringing them into relationships that will help them to flourish.

Our vision is to see “refugees experiencing abundant life in flourishing communities.”

In Youth Programs, we nurture the development, talents, and skills of refugee youth and their families to be healthier and stronger together. 

We capitalize on out-of-school time with our summer and school year programming. We focus on meeting youth where they are and equipping them with the resources they need to become all they were created to be.
