Higher is partnering with Lutheran Refugee Service in Lancaster, PA in an exciting pilot project that will help a growing number of refugees pursue their career goals, find a job upgrade and expand their community networks. These pictures are from last week’s second cohort kick-off and orientation that started an additional seven partnerships off to a great start. Read more about this innovative partnership in a recent Lancaster Online article, which motivated all seven of the mentors in the second group to get involved.
Khem Subedi, a Bhutanese refugee who was featured in the article, is now joined by his wife Pramila (in the beautiful green sari in the collage). Follow the progress of Khem, Pramila, their mentors and the rest of the group by subscribing to Higher’s blog. We’ll also be sharing what we learn so that others can help refugees deepen their community connections and professional success through mentoring.
