Mission Statement

The Utah Refugee Education and Training Center is a partnership between Salt Lake Community College, Utah State University and the Utah Department of Workforce Services. The Refugee Center serves two purposes: To foster opportunities for refugees to access family-sustaining employment, and to support refugee communities’ efforts to find appropriate solutions towards integration.

Description

As part of the Department of Workforce Service, the Utah Refugee Education and Training Center offers employment, intake, and program services to assist refugees in Salt Lake City with their integration journey. We serve as a hub that offers commonly needed services such as job search assistance, ESL, citizenship preparation, and basic computer skills. We also leverage skill-based volunteerism as well as targeted in-kind and financial donations to provide free trainings and programs for adults and youth with interests ranging from I.T. and computer programming to leadership and public speaking to sewing and product development. If you are interested in serving your local refugee community, we have an opportunity for you!

Would you recommend Utah Refugee Education and Training Center?

by Audrey F. (November 18, 2019)
I worked with Emma Russell at the Refugee Center for a volunteer opportunity to photograph the Girls Who Code class. It was clear to me how much effort and planning went into this, and how much the coordinators and teachers care about their students. It was a joy to work with them, and I cannot wait to come back.
