Office of Refugee Resettlement Refugee Program Employment and Economic Stability – Improving Outcomes for Refugee Women

In 2019, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) Northern California Refugee Career Pathways (RCP) Program implemented practices to increase enrollment and outcomes for women. This effort entailed an expansion of the nursing and launch of an early childhood education program. These pathways build upon the formal and informal caregiving and education-related experiences that many of the agency’s female refugee clients already possess.
