DescriptionFriends of Refugees is a community-based organization committed to the uplift of the many refugees who have moved to the Atlanta area. We offer 8 different programs related to their development as new Americans among us. Our refugee neighbors have emerged as a resilient and loyal workforce for the U.S. employers that hire them. But the process of finding and keeping employment is a challenge to them because of language and cultural barriers, lack of formal education, and lack of employment literacy. Café Clarkston, Friends of Refugees’ employment support and job literacy program, helps to bridge those gaps by providing quality employment support services, soft-skill trainings, networking opportunities, technological assistance, and job development and job placement services.
The Employment Services intern works with Café Clarkston to help refugees and immigrants find work to sustain their families, and to develop their skills and networks for increased employment opportunities.
