Each year, school administrators place children and teenagers into classrooms according to their age, rather than their education.
In addition to facing challenges associated with having had limited resources to a “traditional” education in refugee camps or learning a new language, many of our youth find it difficult to adapt to American systems.
In order to instill confidence and prevent further dropout rates, SSCAU provides immigrant youth with educational resources including personalized tutoring in English, math, and science in addition to flexible mentoring hours.
We estimate that today there are 20-plus young men and women in this community who graduated every year from junior high, high schools, colleges and universities. We feel that the community should support this success drive, because education is a key of success and develop skills that can be useful in the South Sudanese’ lives.
Our community is dedicated to the processes of making these graduated students feel proud for their achievement through celebrating their success.
