How PDX Global Eats will help refugees:
The Refugee Center Online is a national nonprofit headquartered right here in Portland. 100% of the proceeds from PDX Global Eats support our Educating Refugee & Immigrant Students program, which trains educators how to work with newcomer students in their classrooms. Newcomer students bring many valuable strengths with them after arriving in the United States. But many have also faced interrupted educations and have had little formal classroom experience. For educators working in schools with limited resources, learning how to work with newcomer students can be a challenge.
Our course helps educators understand the challenges newcomers face, gain skills to effectively teach them, and begin to see the many ways newcomer students make our schools stronger. After completing the program, many teachers have told us the course helped them become better teachers for all of their students.
