Project need

We are looking to develop a portal for use with East African youth to reduce youth violence by teaching skills of violence prevention, anger management, and leadership. We currently complete a four-week training on these topics, but we want to develop a portal to house additional resources and allow youth to interact with our program material online. This project is technical assistance in developing the portal and designing the website within our current website (http://www.frayeo.org). The Let It Go Program supports East African refugee youth in Minneapolis, Minnesota by supporting them with life skills to reduce violence in their communities. Many of our youth grew up in refugee camps or have significant other exposure to violence and trauma, and they deserve trainings and support to ensure that they can remain safe in their communities and be successful in school without these past traumatic experiences keeping them from achieving their goals. If you are interested in supporting refugee/immigration projects with a focus on economic and social development, we promise that this will be an impactful project and are excited to work with you! We have already started a design project and know what information we want to put on the portal. We would love collaboration, but we plan to have specific topics and trainings online through the portal. After its creation, our youth ambassadors (past successful participants in the program) will run the website.

Organization's mission

The mission of the Fortune Relief and Youth Empowerment Organization (FRAYEO) is to provide support services to youth and adults focused on cultural adjustment and increase socio-economic well-being of the East African communities in Minnesota by providing a continuum of care through culturally specific programs and positively transform the social and economic structures that sabotaged poverty.
