Six young refugee women , ages 16-20, participated in EMBARC’s summer long Community Fabric Project, which uses sewing to empower, engage and increase opportunities. All the girls grew up in refugee camps and spoke no English before resettling in Iowa during the past five years. Through the Community Fabric Project they improved their English, math, financial literacy, and leadership skills, as they learned how to sew superhero capes specifically for Courage League Sports’ Kids Superhero Program.

The Community Fabric Project was supported by EMBARC’s Youth Employment Program which was sponsored by DMACC, United Way and Central Iowa Works.
