Project Information

When refugees first arrive, never having encountered American culture and lifestyle, Syrian Community Network's Cultural Sensitivity training becomes mandatory for most. In this training, SCN strives to provide a safe and open space to welcome refugee families to American society and at the same time provide them with a better idea of the norms of their new environment. The trainings give them a better idea of what they already have encountered, or what they will encounter, and give them a chance to discuss first reactions and to have questions answered.

Other training programs that SCN offers include and are not limited to the following:

  • Personal hygiene and wellness seminars
  • Skill building process and techniques
  • Job search and placement preparation and transitioning
  • On-the-job work conduct
  • English as a Second Language
