Refugee Youth Program

The Refugee Youth Program serves refugee youth in middle and high school offering help with acculturation, increasing social skills, and improving grades. Students receive support from a YCI tutor who tailors a plan for success during the school year and throughout the summer months.
All services are free and are available in the languages spoken by those we serve. Locations

The Refugee Youth Program     also includes:

  • Career Planning
  • Computer-aided Training
  • Tutoring
  • Transportation
  • Vocational Orientation
  • ESOL
  • Homework Assistance
  • Cultural/Recreational Activities
  • Spring and Summer Program includes activities such as trips to museums, recreational activities and continued tutoring

This program has measurable and proven results which have lowered drop-out rates, absenteeism, and suspensions while increasing basic skills knowledge as well as students’ interest in completing their high school diplomas, many of whom continue on to postsecondary education programs.


“I AM   From 20 Million Miles Away” is a book   of memories seen through the eyes of the children of YCI’s   Refugee Youth & Family Program.
