The MAC program addresses the employment needs of refugees that cannot be met with the formula social services or Targeted Assistance Grants (TAGs). The MAC Program is an employment preparatory academy tailored to newly arriving refugee youth and young adults between the ages of 16 and 21. Using a curriculum tailored to refugee youth and young adults, the MAC Program is an alternative program for refugee youth and young adults that disengage from the regular school day. The MAC Program provides activities to connect refugee youth and young adults to the world of work and the skills and knowledge to make healthy choices which will result in socially and economically self–sufficient adults.
