Hello, new neighbor!
Perhaps you have just arrived in the United States as a refugee. Perhaps you came over on a visa to work in North Dakota. Maybe you have lived in the US most of your life, and are new to Bismarck.
However you came here, we are glad to have you. Your presence enriches our whole community, and we want to help you thrive and feel at home!
MENTORSHIPS ARE FREE AND DO NOT COST ANYTHING TO THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE.
Connect with an individual locally once a week for an hour and enjoy activities such as local events, English practice, Citizenship Prep, Driving Practice, and so much more!
Refugee Youth (Ages 15-24)
For refugees between the ages of 15-24 who have been in the US the last 5 years and would like to be connected to a local mentor specialized for career and community development.
Connect with New Americans in your community by being a mentor. Meet once a week for 6 months. We match based on similar gender, interests, hobbies, career goals, languages, and more!
Choose to work with either new refugees 18+ years in our main mentoring program or choose our refugee youth mentoring program in order to work with refugees specifically between the ages of 15-24 and have only been in the country the last five years.
