Alexis Dorman

Orlando, Florida

Alexis Dorman, 16, of Orlando, Florida, a junior at Orlando Science Middle/High Charter School, founded “Career Aid for Young Immigrants and Refugees (CAFYIR),” a nonprofit organization through which she has held academic workshops for nearly 50 young people; her efforts include soliciting donations, securing learning space and supplies, and recruiting volunteers. Alexis started her project after learning about the lack of programs specifically designed to meet the needs of immigrant and refugee students.
