Mission Statement

Helping Refugees and Georgia Thrive At New American Pathways, our vision is to promote safety, stability, success, and service for individual refugees and refugee families in Georgia. We offer five distinct program areas that focus on jobs, education, cultural integration, individual and female empowerment, and building strong families. All of these programs are enhanced through the service of a 15-member AmeriCorps team and dozens of volunteers. Our unique continuum of services results in better outcomes for refugees of all ages and at all stages of self-sufficiency, and ensures that these new Americans develop and contribute their special skills and talents to strengthening the American workforce and helping Georgia thrive.

Ms. Paedia Mixon

Profile:

Paedia is a recognized leader in the refugee community. Under her leadership, the organization’s resettlement program has been recognized nationally as one of the most successful in the country, placing 80% of refugees in jobs within their first six months of resettling in the U.S. Before RRISA and RFS merged to become New American Pathways, Paedia served for four years as RRISA’s Executive Director. She rose from a program-management role to lead RRISA successfully through a financial and program restructure that saw the organization expand beyond resettlement services alone. Earlier in her career, Paedia served in fundraising and program roles at Junior Achievement Worldwide, the Carter Center, and Catholic Social Services. She has a Master’s degree in International Affairs and Development from Clark University, and a BA in International Relations from Georgia State University.

Board Leadership Practices (GuideStar Exchange,

October 2014)
?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Yes
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Yes
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Yes
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Yes

Program Description:

Newly-arrived refugees, who represent a wide range of cultures and languages, are under tremendous pressure to adapt quickly to American life and culture. Within a few short months, they are expected to speak English, find sustainable employment, enroll their children in school, and understand the complexities of the American health care system, government programs, the school system, and social services. With decades of experience, our case management team members, many of whom are former refugees themselves, know how to help refugee families overcome barriers to success. Through community partnerships and referrals, shared experience, common language, and cultural affinity, they build trust and personal relationships, provide positive role models for success, and motivate new Americans to persevere. Services include Cultural Orientation, English Language Literacy, Health Care Navigation, Transportation Education, and Specialized Women’s Services.

Program Description:

The hardships that force people into refugee status unfortunately strike at all levels of society. Some refugees come from agrarian societies and start from low levels of literacy, while others arrive with more advanced education, specialized skills, or even graduate-level professional credentials such as medical, engineering and teaching degrees. Whatever the starting point, our self-sufficiency program services ensure that refugees build on their individual assets and have access to the opportunities that will help them realize their American dream. Services include Employment Readiness and Job Placement, Financial Literacy, Savings Match, and Specialized Vocational Training for Skilled Refugees.

Program Description:

Refugee youth face specific challenges to success including education gaps, low-performing public schools and little or no supplemental academic support. In addition, grade level placements for newly arriving refugee children frequently are based on age, rather than academic skills, leaving older youth a short window of opportunity to obtain literacy and core skills before graduating from high school. Despite these challenges, we consistently find that when refugee youth are supported by social structures and targeted assistance, they make rapid progress in language and literacy and thrive as members of their community. Led by experienced professional educators, our Youth Programs ensure that refugee children advance on grade level and enter high school prepared and on-track to graduate. In partnership with the DeKalb County School System, we provide school-based Afterschool and Summer Camp enrichment programs for approximately 200 refugee students. In addition, our Young Women’s Leadership Program engages up to 20 high school girls each year to develop the skills and knowledge they need to build healthy relationships, make safe and responsible decisions, and prepare for high school graduation and long-term economic self-sufficiency.

Program Description:

Our experience demonstrates that refugee parents want to lay a secure foundation for their children’s success, but that they sometimes need additional support, skills, education, and encouragement to do so. For many refugees, early learning and child development concepts, the American system of education, and local school system policies are completely unfamiliar. Our support for parents begins with culturally appropriate training about early childhood development and continues through activities to help them meet the needs of older children and fully understand their parental rights and obligations in American schools. Through Parents as Teachers, a nationally accredited, evidence-based curriculum, we help parents of very young children understand child development, promote literacy, access early learning programs, and become effective teachers and advocates. We provide School Liaison Services for parents of older students – who often need help understanding and navigating school systems and connecting with their children – as well as for educators who need help successfully connecting with refugee parents.

Program Description:

We are committed to supporting activities that promote the civic involvement of refugee communities and build their self-sufficiency. This includes outreach to encourage participation in the US civic and political system, leadership development for refugee leaders, and cultivation of refugee-led initiatives and groups that help refugees meet their own needs. As community experts on refugees and resettlement, we also play a critical role in promoting public awareness of the stories, achievements, and assets refugees bring to our state. The process of obtaining US citizenship includes passing a test in English, US history, and government, as well as completing complicated paperwork and often paying a considerable fee. Refugees, who are eligible to apply for citizenship after they have been in this country for five years, often need help navigating this process. New American Pathways provides Citizenship and Legal Services for refugees, asylees, Cuban-Haitian immigrants, and victims of human trafficking. Our skilled Immigration Services team provides low-cost or no-cost immigration-related legal services including Legal Permanent Resident (LPR) applications, family petitions, travel document and asylum applications, and applications for US citizenship.
