Refugee Resettlement at the White House!

Last week, the White House Task Force on New Americans hosted a National Skills and Credential Institute focused on how best to help skilled refugee and immigrant professionals re-enter their career fields in the U.S.

18 delegations from 17 states participated. Many of our allies, partners and refugee community leaders participated. You can read more details in this announcement from Imprint.

9 of the delegations included resettlement agency staff!

Higher got to attend, too. (Thank you, ORR.)  Stay tuned to our blog for more posts as we process everything we learned about apprenticeships, credentialing, contextualized ESL and much more.
