New American Pathways is a refugee resettlement organization, providing refugees and immigrants services from arrival in the country through 5 years or citizenship. They offer a continuum of services to their clients in order to best serve them along the cultural adjustment journey in the United States. They offer the following services: resettlement, employment, immigration, Parents as Teachers, school liaison, and after school services. They have 4 after school programs for elementary and middle school refugee students. These students are K-8, and most have been in the country for less than 5 years. Their students have a variety of backgrounds, and there is not one explanation that could encompass them all.
