Student link with refugees

December 10, 2009

Students from Brighton and Sussex will be “befriending” young refugees and asylum seekers after the JSoC formed a link project.

Students will receive mentoring training before assisting and guiding asylum seekers through the Refugee and Asylum Seekers Project.

Ruth Samuel, JSoc’s education and social action representative, said: “We chose to link with this project because it gives Jewish students the chance to make a difference to people and to gain experience of other cultures and the issues that refugees face today.”
