Mentoring a family requires patient listening to their needs and concerns on a weekly basis. We help families with many things; simple and complicated that we take for granted such as: how to speak and communicate in English (e.g. ESL registration), how to gain access to skills, how to register children for school, how to use simple household appliances, how and where to store food, how to cross a road, how to get a library card, how to keep their apartment clean, how to maintain personal hygiene and so much more. The refugees will also be enrolled in the formal DFWROS Mentorship Program which has the following goals:
- Employment sessions with the mentors and their mentees.
- The mentor will help the mentee identify the types of jobs that they can target.
- Refugees learn to interview for the job, fill out an employment application, and write a short resume.
- Refugees gain assistance to get work visas.
- Host 2 Employment Training Days. The mentors share their work experiences.
