The NSC Employment Team partnered with the Global Guides program at the Penn Museum last year and referred clients from the Middle East to give personal tours. Now, a year later, the guides are thriving and leading incredible tours of the Museum's Middle East galleries.
This article highlights Moumena Saradar, a former NSC client who has lived in Philadelphia for two years and has worked at the Penn Museum for one year.
"For Saradar, the Penn Museum has become a home away from home, a safe place where she has ample time and space to mull over her feelings about Syria and her cultural heritage — issues she says she didn’t consider when she lived in Syria, but are powerful and potent now that she lives in the United States."
