This past month I have been in editing mode, honing the school orientation toolkits for parents and youth. It is exciting after months of research and process to be nearing a final draft which can be given out to our partners, made available on our website, and potentially used. These toolkits will provide a list of resources and guides that will help orientate and engage youth and families towards the US school system. Each guide presents a series of topics and corresponding materials as well as a list of potential activities and tips towards implementation. It is exciting to be at a point where I can see how these toolkits can serve our Refugee School Impact Grant partners and the newcomer families.
