Refugee Development Center

The greatest part about the Refugee Development Center is its versatility in its ways to help the refugees of Lansing. Included in its different programs and services is the youth program, which helps integrate the refugee youths into their schools and communities through several different ways.


The center has a computer lab with many different programs the refugees can use to practice English or use for homework. Here, a student works on his typing skills by playing a Mavis Beacon typing game where an iguana eats his letters if he types them correctly. The programs range from beginner to advanced, and are often used as rewards for good behavior and after homework is finished.

The center closes for winter break but will reopen in the spring semester.
