The campaign kicked off on Friday, July 27, with a day trip to Ellis Island for nearly 90 students participating in the IRC’s Refugee Youth Summer Academy – a program where newly arrived refugee, asylee, and other vulnerable immigrant youth can develop the skills to succeed in the New York City public school system. With dedicated tour guides and interpreters, the students discovered the country’s rich history of immigration and inclusion, and saw where some 12 million immigrants arrived to begin their new lives in the U.S. The tour was provided in partnership with New York Tour1, and is bookable on TripAdvisor. https://www.tripadvisor.com/blog/welcome-home-refugees-new-york-ellis-island/
