The Karen (kuh-ren) Organization of Minnesota is the first social services agency in the country founded by Karen refugees from Burma. They provide resources to help organizations learn how to work with this growing community. Our RLC tutors help Karen children at Central Park School who immigrated from refugee camps after leaving Burma. We will be getting acquainted with this unique community-oriented culture through a a couple of different events in May at RLC.
