Increasing the Participation of Refugee Seniors in the Civic Life of Their Communities
Created by Mosaica: The Center for Nonprofit Development & Pluralism in partnership with Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. under a project funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement, “Technical Assistance to Promote Refugee Citizenship & Civic Participation.” This
guide was developed through a collaboration between Mosaica and the Temple University Center for Intergenerational Learning’s “Civic Engagement for All” initiative. It is a companion piece to a webinar conducted on March 9, 2009. The webinar presented a report by the
Center for Intergenerational Learning (CIL) entitled, Community Treasures: Recognizing the Contributions of Older Immigrants and Refugees.
