About the Role

Our Go South fellows will work to further strengthen our summer program offerings for both children and adults. Inspiritus’ Refugee School Impact Grant program hosts an after-school tutoring program for school-aged children that meets four days per week and services over 30 students and their parents. We recently completed our second summer program to keep these students engaged during the summer break. One Go South fellow will assist with researching and implementing cultural orientation activities and community engagement opportunities for the students. A special emphasis will be placed on working with older students who have historically been less engaged in the program. The fellow will also conduct regular community outreach to assist with increasing community awareness of the refugee program and recruiting volunteers for the RSIG program. The fellow will also help organize an event in celebration of World Refugee Day in late June. A second fellow will assist with the adult summer program that was launched this past year. The program works primarily with mothers and their young children to assist with financial literacy, English acquisition, cultural orientation, and job readiness. The program meets at the same time as the childrens’ summer program to make the program as accessible and convenient as possible. The fellow will assist with establishing a curriculum that can be used in future summers, organizing and leading activities for participants, and recruiting for volunteers in the community.
