Building something from nothing is no small task. That’s why we rely on a dedicated network of staff, volunteers, and community partners to support the refugees, immigrants, and asylum-seekers that we serve. Together, we support these populations as they rebuild a safe and stable life right here in the United States. This month, we sat down with Alicia to talk about her inspiration and impact as a volunteer English teacher with CAO.
CAO is thrilled to be launching the Refugee Community Integration Project this month. Through this innovative initiative we aim to promote and assure the successful integration of refugee communities as they seek to make the U.S.A. their new home and provide refugee communities with improved capacity and opportunity to grow.
In 2016, CAO will partner with the City of Aurora to increase the number of Aurora residents achieving their American Dream. CAO will integrate the knowledge and expertise necessary to ensure that underserved communities in Aurora will receive assistance towards achieving their American dream - U.S. Citizenship.
