Challenge

Since 1980, an average of 1,650 refugees has arrived each year. Teach By Tech believes that refugees are integral to economic growth and innovation in Colorado. Unfortunately, many refugees arrive with little to no education or knowledge of personal finance or digital literacy. Many have limited English language proficiency. All of these factors limit opportunities and slow the acquisition of self sufficiency, improved employment and overcoming poverty.

Solution

This project allows us to expand our reach and provide over 100 refugees with vocational training and financial literacy skills. Each course is designed to meet the specific needs of our participants. We create custom videos and text video links and messages to engage and teach students. Each student is given basic computer training and digital literacy training on mobile phones. All classes are designed to enhance English language acquisition and improve job opportunities.

Long-Term Impact

This project will provide 100 refugees with long term financial stability by giving them the necessary tools for managing their personal finances and prepare for employment. It will help to integrate refugees into the U.S. financial system, and promote positive economic activity in communities across the country. Economic empowerment is the key to overcoming poverty and attaining self sufficiency. Our programs are meant to promote self worth and and encourage refugees to strive for betterment.
