Millennium Fellowship Project: Connect Tech: Refugee Education
Our project’s main goal is to connect Georgia Tech students with refugees from the Atlanta area. We plan to engage students in our community by organizing at least 4 volunteer events a semester in collaboration with local organizations that support refugee communities. We will provide transportation and organize a volunteer event with Global Growers. We will organize a fundraiser in support of the local Friends of Refugees. We hope to continuing contributing our resources and knowledge on resume building, tutoring, computer skills, etc. to advance professionalism. We plan to increase awareness on our campus through campus outreach events like hosting a film viewings. We hope to build/create an established relationship with Global Growers, Friends of Refugees, and International Rescue Committee Atlanta Center so that Georgia Tech students can continue to carry on supporting these organizations in years to come.
