PHENND Fellows - Immigrant Education Liaison
Since its founding, NSC has expanded and transformed to meet the changing and increasingly complex needs of immigrants and refugees. Despite programmatic and structural changes over the years, NSC’s dedication to serving all immigrants and refugees and its philosophy of providing comprehensive services in one location have remained steadfast. For more than a century, NSC has been a critical part of the Philadelphia community. Today, NSC serves 5,000 immigrants and refugees each year from over 100 countries around the world. NSC has never wavered from our founding commitment to assist all newcomers with building a solid foundation for a self-sustaining and dignified future. The PHENND Fellow at NSC will address the impact of poverty by supporting low-income immigrants to actively engage in their children’s education. This project will work to break families free from poverty by providing newcomer parents and students with the information, support and connections they need to succeed. The VISTA will develop an education system orientation, recruit volunteers to support families and develop relationships with local education support systems. As a result of the VISTA’s efforts, newcomer families will have the information, support and connections they need to actively engage with their children’s education.
