Younger immigrants can often find life in America challenging, even after being in America for three or four years. One of our efforts is to offer experiences for refugee teens and use the experiences to have conversation and lessons about life.
Zayd Vestal, a former Migros Aid summer intern, led a group of young guys in a rock climbing experience. It was their first time to go to a rock climbing gym.
Conversations about perseverance and goal setting were natural in the experience.
“When I got to the top i felt happy and feel like I accomplished something. This is what it is like in life.” said one participant.
If you have an experience for young immigrants, please contact us. We are always looking for new ideas
