certificate program in advancing the role of community stakeholders in refugee integration

This certificate engages participants in learning about forced displacement and refugee resettlement, and the methods by which community members can support and participate in refugee integration efforts while centering the agency and dignity of refugees as co-designers of those methods. The certificate also seeks to respond in effective, principled, and nimble ways to the current moment in forced migration and our nation’s increased capacity for welcome (for example through Welcome Corps, an opportunity for Americans to privately sponsor refugees).

The program was offered over the course of three days with 15 hours of contact split into five three-hour sessions in August 11-13, 2023 (in person) – It was successfully completed by 10 individuals on the Guilford College Campus.
