Refugee Transitions is a community-based nonprofit agency serving high-need, low-income refugee, asylee, and immigrant newcomers from 50 countries. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, RT provides education, family engagement, and community leadership services that help newcomers become self-sufficient and successful in their new communities. A key component of our work over the last 30 years has been fostering cross-cultural relationships between receiving and newcomer communities.
RT's mission is to assist newcomer families in becoming self-sufficient in the United States by providing services to help them attain the English language, life, job, and academic skills they need to succeed in their new communities.
Our vision is to see all newcomers thrive and become full, participating members of our shared communities. We believe in the power of education to unlock opportunity, and we provide solutions that are transformative for students and volunteers alike. We are honored to share in the journeys of our students and firmly believe that refugees, asylees, and immigrants have the resilience and leadership potential to shape our world for the better.
Cost info: Our programs are free.
Student and Volunteer Success Stories
"My family immigrated to the United States in 2008.
We had stepped off the plane knowing almost next to nothing
about the American culture and language. Now, I am fluent
in English and am somewhat knowledgeable about the
American culture, and my parents' knowledge of English
has increased dramatically. How were we able to improve?
This was because of the two home-based tutors that we have,
and they've changed our lives."
--Amy, RT Youth Student
