Welcoming the Stranger
We are a grassroots project matching mentors with asylum-seekers to help them integrate into the Greater Portland (Maine) community.
Mentoring is an informal cross-cultural friendship and partnership. Mentors partner with a mentee or family to help them navigate their new community and learn about available resources.
Our Mentoring Project helps asylum seekers adjust to life in greater Portland, Maine. We match asylum seekers with mentors who can help them learn about a new country and a new culture.
We have a large collection of tips, articles, documents as well as some Q&A on a wide range of topics that affect the everyday life of Greater Portland’s immigrant community.
