New Refugee Network Director Expands Summer Program

The Episcopal Refugee Network’s (ERN) new executive director, Jake Young, has announced that the program for children will be expanded this year.

The Tuesday-through-Thursday tutoring program will continue through the summer, instead of closing. Staff and volunteers will provide afternoon language and math skills development, field trips, and enrichment programs.

These activities will support children who have not been able to take advantage of other ERN summer programs.

The summer also includes a week-long experience at the diocesan camp, Camp Stevens, the cultural exchange and swim lessons with The Bishop’s School teens, and support from the Diocesan Service Coalition’s Back 2 School Bash, which provides much-needed school supplies, backpacks, haircuts and family portraits.

“Our summer activities in the past have been great, but only a limited number of kids could participate,” said Executive Director Jake Young. “We intend to create a better growth and development experience for many more kids this year, while continuing the special programs that kids have enjoyed in the past.”

Mr. Young was appointed to his position in April. He has a background in management consulting and non-profit management, and most recently served as the chief operating officer of Pro Kids, also located in City Heights.
