MTCC AmeriCorps College Coach - Soft Landing
 
 
 
The Soft Landing Missoula youth program aims to create opportunities for success, emotional and physical wellbeing, and social engagement for refugee and immigrant youth. By developing and offering a range of services for youth and young adults, Soft Landing Missoula aims to create an environment and community space where these clients have access to academic, social, and recreational opportunities that support positive social determinants of health. SLM offers after school academic mentoring, college access support, and summer programming as well as social, and recreational opportunities for elementary, middle, and high school age refugee youth. Accessing higher education can be a huge challenge for refugees and immigrants, especially navigating a school system foreign to the ones they may have grown up with– if they had access to education in their countries of origin at all. Creating programming for academic and social success in middle school and high school sets students up for opportunities for pursuing secondary education in the long term. We are beginning to see some of the graduates of our programs successfully enter college or enter into college preparation programs with the intent of being successful once they enter college. Soft Landing Missoula works with community partners to support refugee and immigrant students in their academic success to improve outcomes for higher education later in life by creating a safe and supportive learning environment here refugees can engage academically and socially to increase their confidence and academic success.
