Project Description: The Multicultural Leadership Project empowers refugee and immigrant youth in Aurora, Colorado. Through the program, high school students of all cultural and religious backgrounds share personal experiences, develop skills and assume leadership roles within their school community. The participation in this leadership initiative allows refugee and immigrant youth to voice and process their own cultural adjustment challenges and grow from them. The community projects will focus on helping their newly-arrived peers feel welcomed and supported in their adjustment to a new school, culture and home in the United States.
