The Story

Invest in a New Life for Refugee and Immigrant Students

 

Not since World War II has the United States seen a refugee crisis like the one we have right now. From Syria alone, there are 4.8 million displaced people, and when they arrive to their adopted homes, they are more than just displaced. They are exhausted. They are also confused by the new culture, and they are often lost in the language.

 

However, the journey to rebuild their lives is just beginning.


For the past six years, YALLA has served over 1,000 refugee and immigrant youth, ages 6-18 from all across the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia. Our vision is to create a college hub for refugee and immigrant youth through our state-of-the-art, technology-based, academic programs. We utilize our students’ love of soccer as a hook to motivate them to focus on their academics and to build a successful future.

 

Let's impact the lives of refugee and immigrant youth and build a bright future together!
