You’re Invited!

Please join us for CORE’s first webinar!

Earlier this year, CORE surveyed Cultural Orientation (CO) providers at domestic Resettlement Agencies (RAs). Responses indicated a strong desire to learn more about the work of their overseas counterparts at Resettlement Support Centers (RSCs). In response to this request, CORE is pleased to announce our first webinar:

“Overseas Resettlement Support Center Cultural Orientation Programs”

The webinar will be held on Thursday, November 5 at 3 pm EST, during CORE’s CO Leadership Workshop which is taking place November 2 – 6, 2015 in Silver Spring, Maryland. Anyone interested in learning more about RSCs and their CO programs is encouraged to attend!

Each RSC CO Coordinator will address what Fiscal Year 2016 has in store for their individual programs and discuss the biggest challenges they face on the ground. To enhance the webinar, this RSC CO Fact Sheet has been prepared as an advance reference guide. A Q&A will follow each RSC presentation.

Please see below to add the WebEx Meeting to your calendars and be sure to retain this information to join us on November 5th!

Central American Minors Backgrounder

Resettlement agencies around the country will soon be resettling unaccompanied minors arriving from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, through The Central American Minors (CAM) Program. CORE has produced the CAM Backgrounder to support resettlement agency staff who receive and welcome these children, and to aid others in the host communities—educators, health professionals, social workers, government officials, and members of the general public—who may be engaged to help Central American Minor refugees adjust to life in the United States.

The backgrounder contains historical, political, and cultural information intended to cultivate a rich understanding of the diversity of these countries and peoples. In addition, it contains information on the health, education, and family life of these children, as well as links to online resources and best practices that will aid service providers in tailoring care to each child’s specific needs.

The CAM Backgrounder is available in a low-resolution version suitable for easy download and sharing, and in a high-resolution version suitable for printing. All CORE resources are free to access, download, and use!
