Join us for our 45th Annual International Taste of Columbus 



Our International Program is excited to announce the 45th Annual International Taste of Columbus on August 16th from 5:30 to 9:00 pm! The Taste is our signature annual event and this year we will highlight the multiculturalism and diversity of Africa through musical performance, authentic cuisine, and artwork created by New American clients. Clients from Central and East Africa will share their stories and our Co-Founder, Nadia Kasvin, will provide information regarding US Together’s work in Rwanda. Hosted at the African Event Center of the Columbus Zoo, this unique event will feature Franklin County Commissioner Kevin Boyce, a dedicated supporter of the New American community. To honor his work elevating New Americans socially and economically, we will be presenting Commissioner Boyce with the New American Champion Award, a new tradition that celebrates the combined missions of US Together and the historic Columbus International Program, a non-profit that merged with US Together in October 2017.

The Asian Festival’s Dragon Boat Race: 



On May 18th, staff, interns, and a few clients partnered with Northern Kiwanis Club for the Asian Festival’s Dragon Boat Race! Throughout the day, we shared our work with community members and raced local businesses. We made friends, tried new foods, and even won two races in our division. It was a great team-building experience, and we can’t wait to participate next year!































New American Forum 2019:



On May 2nd, the New American Advisory Council (NAAC) hosted the 2019 New American Forum. Our Co-Founder and Chair of the #NAAC kicked off the forum with an introduction by Franklin County Commissioner Kevin Boyce. Commissioner Boyce spoke of the importance of creating a welcoming community for refugees and immigrants. In an effort to bridge the gap between the New American community and our governmental representatives, round table discussions were designed to facilitate candid communication between representatives and New Americans.
