Do you want to create a space for newly resettled refugee youth in your own neighborhood? Are you a teaching artist looking for a summer opportunity here in New York?
ASTEP is once again teaming up with the International Rescue Committee for the Refugee Youth Summer Academy, a 6-week summer camp that focuses on helping refugee youth break down the barriers they face by improving their English language proficiency, social and emotional skills, community ties and confidence——abilities they require to create a new life for themselves in their new home.
Program Dates: 5 July – 12 August 2016 (Orientation: June 29-July 1)
Application deadline: ASAP
Location: Downtown Manhattan, NYC
Who: All artists! We need a diverse team and hope that you are a part of it!
