Refugees Helping Refugees provides vocational training for refugee students.

The trainings include sewing and cooking classes, cleaning and facility maintenance training, resume writing, and job searching. This is made possible thanks to a cooperation with “RochesterWorks!” 

Students participating in Cooking Matters, a six-week program in nutrition and food preparation run in cooperation with Foodlink.

Following our mission of creating self-sufficient refugee individuals, these training opportunities are a constructive requirement for earning government benefits. The trainings will ultimately prepare refugees to enter the workforce, with many even opening their own businesses.
