Refugees Welcome! organizational structure has two dimensions; our programing, which includes capacity building and networking events, a UMass Boston student led chapter, and volunteer coordination, and our research think tank. We us a participatory approach to constructing our research agenda that engages immigrant service providers and organizations directly.
On June 4th, 2018, Refugees Welcome! engaged 32 immigrant service organizations to develop a strategic plan and identify four specific research areas. These research clusters will be developed over the next three months. We are currently developing our proposal for a research grant.
