what is karam house?

karam house is a community innovation center for syrian refugee youth.

 

Karam House is a safe space where students can learn, build, grow, and most importantly, be teens. At Karam House, students pursue their passion and turn their ideas into reality. Karam House is not a school; the curriculum at Karam House is supplemental to what students learn in school. At Karam House, students sign up for skill building workshops led by our team of mentors that are Syrian refugees as well. Year round, mentors lead workshops in Engineering, Design, Art, Architecture, Coding, and SO MUCH MORE!
