Event

Children Of Today
        Many of our community children did not have a schooling opportunity before coming to the US.  They start by learning English, then catching up with American born students.  The newly arrived children are required to do all the following at the same time: leaning English, learning American culture, learning to modify behaviors, dealing with oppressions, adjusting to the culture gap between home and the school, and interpreting between Somali and English for their parents who take longer time to learn English.  Only few make it to the regular classes after being in the special education for years.
         Many children drop out and start spending more time on streets at young age.  Parents have their own struggles and are not able to give enough support to children.  The need to support a child at community organizations is indispensable to the future of our children.  

    Through our children's programs, children are able to ask questions in their own language, learn with peers, learn and/or retain Somali culture and history, re-gain their ethnic identity, obtain emotional support and the life guidance from community adults, and improve their academic achievement.
