The New American Consortium is made up of three member organizations who are incorporated in our Board of Directors. These organizations are African Initiative for Progress, Djibouti Community, and Giving + Learning. Learn more about these organizations here:
African Initiative for Progress
The African Initiative for Progress (AIP) mentoring program is designed to help students to reach appropriate decisions, approach life in a more pro-active way, and work toward a successful future. They have been working with the Davies and South High Schools to provide mentoring in order to overcome behavioral, attendance-related, and academic challenges that many students and youths face. Mentees processed into the program sign up through the schools, with the approval of their parents, and are matched with our trained mentors who provide on-site tutoring.
Djibouti Community Development of North Dakota
The Djibouti Community facility, located in Fargo, ND, is active in Cass and Clay counties where the majority of Djiboutian immigrants reside. The organization was established in 2016 and offers different services for newly arrived immigrants and refugees to the community. They offer basic services like ESL classes, health education classes and interpreting for the families with limited English skills for their health and education needs.
The community is willing to expand its services in the future to help more members in the community for needs such as case management, referrals, children and youth programs, education courses, and workshops. The Djiboutian Community welcomes all immigrants, refugees, and other communities with open hands in order to learn from each other and to better serve our community.
Giving + Learning
Giving + Learning is an in-home tutoring service that aims to bring volunteers to the homes of adult ELLs who may have difficulty traveling to receive English tutoring, or learners who work when classes are available. Giving + Learning matches volunteers with individuals or families for tutoring one hour a week. Giving + Learning also hosts tutoring sessions at the WE Center every Saturday and Sunday from 4-6 pm. Volunteers are much needed and always welcome. To volunteer with Giving + Learning, fill out this easy-to-use online form.
