Refugee Services Certificate

With continuing conflicts around the globe, there are currently 45 million people who are displaced from their homes. Fifteen million of these displaced persons are designated as refugees by the United Nations because they are unable to safely return home. Some of these refugees are then permanently resettled somewhere else in the world, including right here in Boise, Idaho.

The resettlement process for refugees is fraught with challenges and difficulties. Having workers who understand the refugee journey and the challenges of resettlement can make a tremendous difference in the lives of refugees and quality of services they receive. The certificates we offer through the School of Social Work help prepare for this difficult and rewarding work.
