About

Fugees Family is advancing educational justice for refugee and immigrant youth.

Together, we can ensure America’s students have access to an excellent education, designed with their unique strengths in mind.

Since our founding in 2006, Fugees Family has provided over 15 years of education to refugee and immigrant youth new to American life and culture. We have meticulously designed our education model — grounded in the Comprehensive Student Development framework– to meet the unique needs of English language learners and young people who have experienced traumatic events and displacement from their home countries. At Fugees Family, we believe in the vast potential of America’s fastest growing population and that the journey to success starts with an excellent education.
