Refugee Assistance Alliance

Education & Youth Development
RAA’s mission is to help displaced persons lacking a support network navigate life in the U.S., primarily through in-home English tutoring and community events. RAA supports underserved refugee populations in South Florida, mainly refugees from Syria. Our non-religious, non-political organization provides volunteer tutors and mentors to help these families learn basic English and provide other assistance as needed. We also sponsor cultural programming and special events to help families navigate their new home and learn about their new culture. Our refugee families often tell us their tutors become like family to them and vice versa. RAA program goals are English language acquisition and self-sufficiency for all refugees. Ultimately, we hope our program promotes peace and understanding among the people of South Florida.
