This tool, which is the second tool of a toolkit for schools, will focus on community collaboration among schools, refugee resettlement agencies, and ethnic community based organizations. While refugees bring with them a host of strengths, schools may need external partners to solve challenges related to interpreter access, funding, parent involvement, programming for students with interrupted formal education, out of school time opportunities for refugee youth, and more.
