We support refugees through English language instruction, American culture immersion, and mentorship.
The Refugee Assistance Alliance, founded in 2017, supports underserved refugee populations in need in South Florida by arranging in-home tutoring, cultural programming, and various special events. RAA primarily works with refugees from Syria. We are a non-religious, non-political organization that coordinates volunteer tutors and mentors to help our families learn basic English and provide other assistance as needed. Although we enter our families’ homes as tutors and mentors, this relationship often develops into so much more. Our refugee families often tell us their tutors become like family to them and vice versa. The goals of our program are English language acquisition and self-sufficiency, and ultimately we hope this program promotes peace and understanding among the people of South Florida.
