The Refugee Assistance Program (RAP), also known as 'Bob's School,' was established in 1978 by the Syracuse City School District to assist the increasing numbers of refugees arriving in the Syracuse community. It is the mission of the RAP to help refugees open doors to their new world by providing them with the skills needed to become successful productive members of our community. Services are individualized and take into consideration personal and educational backgrounds, work experience and cultural differences.
 
The staff of the RAP includes professional and paraprofessional service providers with experience in the fields of education and employment. Linkage with other service providers in the community assures maximum use of community resources to break down any barriers to self sufficiency. RAP runs Monday through Friday 8:30 - 11:30am & 12:00 - 3:00pm.

  • English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
  • Career Counseling
  • Employment Training
