Economic empowerment programming is designed to support economic independence among refugee families through labor market integration and the achievement of full financial capability. A key component of economic empowerment programming is early employment services to help refugees prepare for, secure, and retain employment. Work offers not only a chance to earn money and make one’s own decisions, it restores a sense of normalcy and predictability to life, and a way to make friends and to contribute to the receiving community. The resources here focus on practical and proven methods to support refugees and employers in accessing the labor market.
