JVS addresses the issue of refugee life and poverty. This is achieved by working to both educate the students and to help find jobs for those in need. JVS also helps bridge the cultural gap between their home countries and the United States. I admire the willingness of JVS to help people become independent.
One student has surprised me because of his strong desire to learn. At the beginning he was shy and didn’t really talk but now he is constantly asking questions and wants to learn more. He has a good understanding of English and although he's behind the other students, it is clear that he's eager to catch up. I love how willing the other students are to help him.
