Oakland International High School (and RT) in the Washington Post, 2018 

Our long-time partner, Oakland International High School (OIHS) has been featured in the Washington Post, with Refugee Transitions earning a cameo in the story. Support services were cited as key enablers of OIHS students’ success, and RT was flagged as one of the service providers. Our agency has been a close OIHS partner since the school opened in 2007. We provide parent language and literacy classes, after-school tutoring, and a youth leadership program. In addition, about 40-50 OIHS students each year receive our home-based tutoring/mentoring through trained volunteers. We’re so proud of our dedicated staff and volunteers who work with OIHS students and their parents!

At least 95% of our students who pass through our youth leadership program, continue their education in college.
