Who We Are

The Welcome Project builds the collective power of immigrants to participate in and shape community decision through programming that strengthen the capacity of immigrant youth, adults, and families to advocate for themselves and influence schools, government, and other institutions. 

Our Impact

Our programs provide the training and the platform for immigrants to participate more fully in civic life and have a powerful presence in the schools, city government, and other institutions that shape our lives. TWP’s culturally responsive approach builds on immigrants’ existing strengths to forge connections across language and culture, helping immigrants find success and community in their new city.

Somerville Response Network
