  • Turkish Program

     2016 - 2021

    Paper Airplanes noticed an increased need for refugees to learn Turkish. Turkey hosts nearly 3 million Syrian refugees that didn't speak Turkish before crossing the border. Knowing the local language and being fluent in it would greatly help refugees navigate the Turkish legal system, engage with businesses, participate in the local communities, and complete educational goals. From this need, Paper Airplanes decided to open the Turkish Program in 2016.

  •  Student Advising Program

     2020 - 2021

    Paper Airplanes noticed that their students had big dreams that they didn't know how to achieve, and we wanted to support them and help them achieve those dreams and that is how Student Advising was created. Student Advising worked with the students to help them achieve their educational and employment goals. They helped them find scholarships, write personal statements, and prepare their applications.
