Your donation will support the International Rescue Committee's (IRC) New Jersey Refugee Youth Summer Academy (RYSA), whose funding has been significantly reduced! RYSA is a privately funded initiative that engages 70 refugee youth ages 5 to 20 to promote English language learning, self-confidence and healing in a fun, structured supportive environment. Students come from over 15 countries-- top five include Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Sudan. RYSA takes place at Kean University’s Human Rights Institute in Union, New Jersey from August 7-25, 2017. We greatly appreciate your support!
