1. The Power of Newcomer Stories

Program & Certification (coming fall 2022)

The aim of this e-learning is to help newcomers and other students interested in working with immigrants and refugees learn to understand stories.  Students will discover creative ways to overcome struggles so as to move forward in their personal journeys.

We all grow up hearing stories, then we often get lost, but learn to express who we are and where we are going with our own stories.
