The mission of the YPFP Refugee Assistance Program (RAP) is to create a social support network of volunteer mentors for recently resettled refugees in the greater Washington, D.C. area. These relationships are integral to providing survivors of oppression, war, and political violence with assistance to build new lives in the United States. YPFP RAP volunteers engage directly with refugees, exerting a substantial impact on their lives and in the process gaining meaningful professional exposure and experience. In addition, RAP serves to educate the broader YPFP community about topics related to refugees, human rights, and immigration.
