PAIR's mission is to empower refugee youth to navigate American society, reach their academic potential, and become community leaders.
We achieve our mission through a variety of educational mentoring programs.
In achieving its mission, PAIR also provides a substantial benefit to its volunteers who increase their leadership and communication skills and their understanding of diverse cultures. Check out our volunteer opportunities!
By developing the potential within each student, Houston's refugee youth will become positively adjusted, self sufficient, engaged members of our community.
At the core of PAIR's efforts is the resolution to bridge the educational gap and foster economic mobility. For many of our students, arrival in the U.S. has created the new and unexpected possibility of receiving secondary education and higher education. PAIR's work aims to assist refugee youth in taking full advantage of this opportunity and to allow these motivated students to pursue an educational path that will further improve the quality of life for themselves and their families.
