This essay is going to describe focus on the work of the Central American Resource Center (CARECEN), a nonprofit organization that offers inexpensive legal, educational, and advocacy services to Central American immigrants. Created in 1983 in San Fernando Valley, CARECEN was originally known as the Central American Refugee Center.

In the summer I volunteered at The Columbus Refugee and Immigration Services. The Columbus Refugee and Immigration Services is an organization where refugees and immigrants come to achieve successful integration into their new American communities. Refugees come here from places all around the world, such as Syria, Somalia, Iraq, Nepal, and Burma. They go through an immense amount of culture shock, but The Columbus Refugee and Immigration Services persistently helps relieve the struggles they may go through. As a volunteer, I helped in teaching the refugees how to speak, read, and write English, and I taught them basic tools they could use in the workforce, such as counting money, behavioral norms in the workplace, and computer skills.
Holtzmann’s Nuer Journeys, Nuer Lives deeply examines and compares how Sudanese refugees have assimilated into Minnesotan culture. After the Nuer came to the United States, many tried to form smaller communities as well as carry on traditions from Nuer culture. The Minnesotan Nuer lifestyle now accommodates Sudanese traditions through American practices; by using United States methods for their practices, the Nuer have found new ways of living in this country. While these Sudanese refugees have faced many difficulties with keeping steady incomes and finding appropriate academic institutions for their children, many of them have been able to form social groups and begin families. Family life, no matter how altered, will always lie at the core of Nuer interactions; and even though Minnesota has been a generally welcoming state for them, there is hope for the future that the Nuer will have equal opportunities to education and living in financial safety as their fellow white neighbours.

I want to start my story before I was even born. My dad came to the United States but my mom was still in the Philippines. Then when I was born in the Philippines, my mom took care of me for five years while my dad was working a minimum wage job in the U.S., trying to earn enough money to send both my mom and I to the United States so we could all have a better life, one where we could prosper more due to the opportunities that the U.S. provides. I grew up going to a public school from kindergarten to 5th grade where I met people of different races. When I was in school being in ESL (English as a Second Language) exposed me to even more people of color such as Mexicans, Middle Eastern people, Turkish people, Latinos, and other Asian people.
My parents were immigrants of Ghana coming into this country. Like many children of immigrants they gave birth to me here so I would have easier access to an education.

Being the tender age of 4, I was yet to understand what was happening or why my daddy would never come home.

Clara Barton was born on December 25, 1921 in Massachusetts. She quickly realized her affinity for helping people when she began caring for her brother, David, after he was injured in an accident.

She started teaching at the age of fifteen, after taking the advice of a doctor who recommended she begin teaching to overcome her shyness, even though at that time it was more common for men to be teachers. She eventually opened up her own free public school in Bordentown, New Jersey in 1953, although she was later replaced by a man.

Here in the United states the Manong generation is considered to be the “first wave of Filipino Americans.” The Manongs started arriving here in the United States in the beginning of the 20th century. The U.

Manongs were mostly able-bodied younger men who were specifically targeted for their work ethic and for being a cheap source of manual labor. They were encouraged and lured in by the Americans with promises of prosperity and a better life.

These two incidents are very similar in which they both involve refugees being killed and forced to leave their homes.
