LEAF Night programming is fueled by community partners!

The Integration of International Families A-Team is seeking community partners to provide a diverse array of youth and parent workshops and student enrichment programming at one or both sites. In the past, these workshops have included topics such as nutrition, health insurance, financial literacy, knowing your rights as immigrants, legal assistance, and more. Dinner is also provided through committed community partners.
