Support Us



Sponsor our mentees financially as they pursue higher education in hopes of becoming a doctor, teacher, engineer, architect, and more! All proceeds go towards mentorship program events and mentee scholarships to enhance access to higher education.

Establish a Chapter

Interested in bringing Refuge to your university? We would love to hear from you! Email us to schedule a 30-minute introductory call.

Refer a Mentee

Mentee recruitment takes place each year from June to September, but university chapters often have a few spots that open up throughout the year. If you know a New American student between the ages of 14 and 19 who lives within 45 minutes of The Ohio State University or the University of Cincinnati, refer them to be a mentee through our referral form here!

Apply to Be a Mentor

We are looking for college mentors who are passionate about our mission and willing to spend 1-2 hours per week to cultivate meaningful relationships with our mentees. Our university chapters typically accept mentorship applications every fall; however, they often have spots open in the spring semesters, as well. All students who attend that university are eligible to apply. All applications are followed by a final interview to be accepted into the program.
