This certificate will engage participants in learning about forced displacement and refugee resettlement, and the methods by which community members can support and participate in refugee integration efforts while centering the agency and dignity of refugees as co-designers of those methods. The certificate also seeks to respond in effective, principled, and nimble ways to the current moment in forced migration and our nation’s increased capacity for welcome (for example through Welcome Corps, an opportunity for Americans to privately sponsor refugees).
The program will be offered over the course of three days with 15 hours of contact split into five three-hour sessions:
- Aug. 11-13 (in person on Guilford’s campus in Greensboro, N.C.)
- October 20-22, 2023 (online)
Additional trainings can be customized to your organization’s specific timing and needs based on prior agreement
