iACT is the only agency in Austin that exclusively teaches English and essential life skills to newly arrived refugees. We help all of these individuals establish roots in their new hometown: Austin. We pride ourselves in not only providing essential language and “cultural orientation” skills, but in making these traumatized families feel welcome.
iACT currently serves over 500 adult refugees from 25 different nations. In addition, The iACT for Refugee Summer Youth Camp provides ESL and math instruction, cultural orientation, outdoor recreation and more to 50 refugee youths.
