Worcester, Massachusetts is home to 26% of Massachusetts’ total refugee population; helping contribute to Worcester's diverse and multicultural community. The YMCA of Central Massachusetts (the Y) is dedicated to strengthening the foundations of communities. The Y asked a team from the Worcester Community Project Center (WCPC) to help with their initiative of welcoming more newcomers to their organization. Throughout the course of the project we identified and interviewed community leaders of various newcomer organizations. We discovered that there are numerous newcomer organizations in Worcester but they may not be well known. Out team worked with the Y to develop an event that celebrates, unites and ,more importantly, markets the various newcomer organizations in Worcester.
