Interning with the IRC in my hometown, San Diego, as an after-school tutor/ESL assistant let me meet some incredible refugee youth (including some resettled for under a year) and the wonderful staff and fellow volunteers who helped them master academics, sports, and their own identity in their new country. The dedication and skill of the IRC staff was incredible -- it was about stepping back and letting those kids tell their own story.
