Refugee Youth Project (RYP)
The Refugee Youth Project (RYP) helps school-aged youth develop the knowledge and skills required for academic success and positive integration. Programs include after-school support, summer school, college access, and community arts. After-school programs focus on homework help, social skills, and building and improving English language skills.
Funding for RYP is provided through the generous support of the Maryland Office for Refugees and Asylees (MORA), as well as supplemental grant and fundraising dollars. All RYP program services are FREE for eligible students.
RYP partners with local colleges, universities, and high schools to recruit more than 250 volunteers each year. Volunteers play a crucial role in providing extra academic support and guidance to youth participants. Community members are also encouraged to participate!
