As global turbulence, including a worldwide pandemic, has created many challenges around the globe, many people, including children have been forced to seek new opportunities for life, belonging, and happiness.
In the state of New Hampshire, more than 7,500 refugees have found a home. Still, in the face of uncertainty, adapting to a new home and new peer groups, adopting another language, and entering a foreign education system brings about additional challenges.
New American Scholars aims to ease this transition by providing academic assistance, social support, and leadership development to our new neighbors. The New Hampshire- based Non-Profit Organization leads by providing refugee students the mentorship and guidance they need to feel connected to their new home.
Not only will our personalized programs help create a path for educational success, New American Scholars will help students successfully transition into their new school community.
