Helping Refugees Become Better Community Leaders

Refugees learn to support their communities through specific curriculum centered around Government, Community and Family

SLCC offers both a youth and adult 10 and 15-week course to ensure the refugee communities are creating leaders for tomorrow and for the next generation.
