Patrick Curran's Fundraiser:

2017 Refugee Youth Summer Academy (RYSA)

Patrick Curran

THE STORY:

Each summer, the IRC provides a program for newly arrived refugee and asylee children and youth to prepare them to succeed in New York City schools through a supportive and creative learning community. This year the IRC is serving up to 120 of elementary, middle and high school levels. The students represent at least 15 nations and speak 20 languages. Many students arrived in the U.S. in 2017, including children from Afghanistan, Guinea & Ecuador. At RYSA, core academic subject area classes emphasize essential learning skills and English language development. Creative arts, physical education, and life skills classes promote social and emotional well-being. Each Friday students participate in field trips to introduce them to the educational and cultural life of New York. For many, RYSA is their first experience of an American education program. Some have had the privilege of a solid education while others have never set foot inside a school before. All have endured extreme hardships and face a challenging transition to their new lives in New York City. RYSA operates on private donations ONLY. Help us to continue providing this unique educational opportunity to children every year!
