Jane Meseck, Jodi Nelson, Leila Toplic and Melissa Ingber Beyond Aid: Solutions for Educating Refugee Youth Summary We are in the midst of the worst refugee crisis since World War II. Syrian refugees alone now number a staggering 4.8 million, more than half of whom are children. Trauma, poverty, social isolation and a lack of access to education are creating a bleak future for a generation of youth. Helping young refugees find a sense of purpose and a path to a better future is critical for their individual futures, their home countries and our well-being as a global community. Join experts from the International Rescue Committee, Aspen Institute, Microsoft, and NetHope for a discussion about how technology and other solutions including virtual exchange can aid refugee education at scale.
