Does your organization work with refugee children or youth? Are you struggling to clearly identify their needs and tailor you programs around them? Sailesh Naidu, a German Chancellor’s Fellow in partnership with FEZ-Berlin will be hosting a one day working session to help organizations better design your programs around the needs of young refugees and measure your impact.

The day long session will encourage participants to look at their existing programming and design strategies for tailoring their programming around refugee youth needs. Participants will be asked to choose elements of their program they would like to improve to serve a model for improving it’s design and ability to measure impact. The day will include group discussions on what it is like to work with young refugees, the sharing of struggles and successes, and working groups for program design and impact measurements.
