The single most important factor in ensuring that newcomers to the United States become integrated and self-sufficient members of society is the support of their new community. Your efforts matter, and we want to provide you with the tools to make a positive impact.

The Refugee Center Online is offering a free online course to help individuals gain the necessary skills and knowledge to better interact with refugees and immigrants in the community. The lessons are self-paced, which means you can start anytime and complete the training on your own schedule.

Remember: Welcoming newcomers doesn’t always have to be formal. It might mean simply being friendly to those in your community. It might mean making a choice to go out of your comfort zone and invite a newcomer family to dinner.
