There are almost 90 Syrians families in Clarkston, Georgia as of January 2017. We provide educational development and support for these families through our Buddy program which connects Atlanta high school and college students who serve as Buddies to refugee families.
The Hope Education Project was created in an effort to address the educational and cultural integration challenges refugee children and their parents face upon arriving to America.
Our Goals are to...
1- Integrate newcomers through English language development
2- Educate American society about the experiences of these a families in an effort to break down stereotypes
3- Nurture the relationship between immigrants and Americans in our community
Education is Hope
Our program connects you with a family in Atlanta. You will help them develop their English language skills while learning about their culture.
