The situations of refugees vary widely across the globe—this is just one logistical barrier of many that creates difficulties in providing education and job opportunities to refugees. Discuss ways to overcome organizational and systemic problems in providing technological opportunities to refugees.
- How can organizations best reach refugee populations? When are these strategies affective? Do they apply to refugees in camps, urban refugees, and refugees who are undergoing resettlement?

- How can education and job services reach multiple demographics (ie, a variety of ages, genders, language proficiencies, urban/camp refugees, etc.) in a population? What challenges stand in the way of reaching as many groups as possible?
