The Refugee Youth Dream is a mentoring program that brings together refugee youth and American youth from the greater Providence community. It provides a space for diverse groups of young people to build friendships, share stories, and to build cross-cultural communication skills.
The program primarily engages with refugee teens and young adults, who often face challenges in acculturation and education. The program creates a positive and empowering space for youth to develop critical leadership and communication skills; it places particular emphasis on helping refugee youth identify their strengths and empower them in creating an enduring and vibrant community of their own here in Rhode Island.
The program runs on alternating Mondays from 4:00 to 6:00 pm at the Refugee Dream Center.
