SUPRA (Syracuse University Program for Refugee Assistance) is an amazingly enthusiastic and eclectic group of volunteers, who come from all types of different backgrounds, but work towards a shared goal: empowering the local refugee community.

The students we work with have come from all over the world, from places of conflict and unrest. We want to contribute to the end of such turmoil in their lives, by providing stability and skills to their resettlement experience. We understand that anxiety need not come only from mortar shells, but also arises from an inability to read past-due utility bills in a language that is not your own.

SUPRA wants to provide skills and confidence to those who have come so far, and gone through so much, to realize the peace and opportunities so many of us have so freely enjoyed our entire lives.
