A vital Southeast Asian refugee community that strengthens Milwaukee’s workforce, families, students, and neighborhoods.
The Burmese Immersion Project works directly with refugees from Southeast Asia who reside in Milwaukee, WI. Committed to educational and social enhancement, the Burmese Immersion Project empowers refugees to navigate American society, access resources, and become community leaders.
Tonight is our last day of homework tutoring for the 2012-2013 school year! Thank you to all our volunteers and our hard working students!
This is the last week of school! The last day of homework tutoring is tomorrow. Then our 2013 summer program begins June 22!
Come celebrate World Refugee Day on June 20 at 11 a.m. at Pere Marquette Park! Experience new cultures and honor the courage of Milwaukee’s refugees.
Recently, the Burmese Immersion Project hit a stroke of bad luck. The three laptops we use in our classroom were stolen. We use these laptops mainly to look things up on the internet when doing homework, and some students have homework that is entirely online-based.
We are therefore holding a Laptop Donation Drive. We ask that you contact us if you have a gently used laptop you may be willing to donate. It doesn’t have to be fancy; it just needs to access the internet.
Please contact Becca Schultz at (608) 772-9401 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a laptop to donate.
We thank you in advance for your generosity. Have a very happy spring!
