Joel Nafuma Refugee Center

 

During my study abroad experience in Rome, I served as a Computer Literacy Instructor at the Joel Nafuma Refugee Center. My main task throughout the summer was conducting daily workshops that were either lesson-driven or had a more open-format. In addition to this, I created curricula that covered topics that ranged from basic excel use to establishing an internet presence. I also assisted with events that were aimed to raise funds and spread awareness about the ongoing refugee crisis.

Since there was a great variance in each guests understanding of the English language and technology, I had to step outside of my comfort zone and find new ways of communicating information.

What I Gained: Ability to dynamically convey information and circumvent communication barriers
