Andrew Heinrich: Helping New York’s Newly Arrived Refugees
April 9 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm
In-person and online!
Project Rousseau is a non-profit organization that provides holistic education programming, social services, and immigration legal services for young people and their families from communities in the highest needs. Today, we will specifically discuss the work that Project Rousseau is doing to support newly arrived refugees and migrants in New York, as the City faces an unprecedented wave of new arrivals.
Andrew Heinrich founded Project Rousseau, a non-profit organization that helps young people in communities in the highest need to reach their full potential and excel in higher education. Alongside his leadership of Project Rousseau, Andrew is General Secretary and a founding board member of PARC Adventures Monaco. He also serves on the Fund Development Council at Columbia University, the Junior Board at City Harvest, the Board of the International School of Monaco, and the Board of Directors at HIAS.
Project Rousseau often says that “academic problems rarely have academic causes,” meaning that our social services are just as important to our academic outcomes as any of our academic programming. Likewise, with the current wave of new arrivals, we are finding the same thing: the success of our immigration legal services relay just as much on our holistic approach to be successful.
