Paid Writing Opportunity for Refugees

Here’s an opportunity for your clients to boost their resumes, make some money, and share their perspective with others. The Refugee Center Online is looking for refugee and immigrant authors to write Refugee Voices articles on a variety of topics.  You can see more details and the upcoming monthly themes here.

While you’re visiting the Refugee Center Online’s website, check out Dyan’s inspirational story and consider sharing it in your job readiness class.  Dyan came to the U.S. as a refugee from Burma and has worked as the Karen Cultural Specialist at the St. Paul Public Schools district headquarters. He was recently selected as a Bush Fellow and will use the $100,000 grant to pursue a Doctor of Education degree in leadership   and enhance his network to better help immigrants and refugees become well-educated, prosperous members of their new community.

    This sounds like a wonderful program to help refugees further their education. I am impressed with your approach. My book, “Refugees! A Family’s Search for Freedom and the Church That Helped Them Find It” (See:, includes a chapter on how our church dealt with these issues when we resettled refugees.
    Thank you for sharing Dyan’s story online. I will share this with the families that we resettled several years ago.
