Refugee children face a tough uphill battle when resettling in a new country. Often times they've been out of school for extended periods of time and miss critical information in school subjects.
Tiyya, which helps refugee families with their basic necessities in Orange County, has an after school tutoring program on the campus of the University of California Irvine every Tuesday from 3:30 - 6 pm. The program is in conjunction with the student-led club called Fresh S.T.A.R.T., which brings awareness and outreach campaigns about issues facing refugees in Orange County.
Work one-on-one with children of refugee families to assist them with their homework. Ages of the children range from kindergarten to high school.
