Kijana Youth Program

Kijana Youth Program Overview

For over fourteen years, Alliance’s Kijana Youth Program has provided youth services to create opportunities for refugee youth to achieve academic success and to cultivate valuable leadership skills. Our tutors provide academic tutoring, math/science labs, and computer lessons to over 240 students in the Gulfton area of Southwest Houston each year. In addition to academic support, Kijana tutors also involve the students in various cultural, team-building and leadership activities, including physical recreation, art projects, music and dance, field trips, and volunteer projects. During the school year, the Kijana Youth Program provides a safe environment for youth during the after-school hours of 3pm to 7pm, and during the summer from 10am-2pm.
