For the past 4 years, New Reflection Foundation has hosted the Unity Ball in celebration of accomplishment. Over 1,500 students have graduated from the New Reflections Technical Institute.

Membership fees paid to New Reflections Foundation, a 501C3 tax-exempt organization, are tax-deductible. Your membership fees are used to fund multiple training programs, student assistance (housing/transportation), and scholarships.
The biggest challenge to education and training is funding. The lack of funding for training for skilled workers prevents the community from acquiring the skills that are needed to obtain higher-paying and in-demand jobs.
Your contribution to the foundation will allow NRI to provide the needed support for New Reflections Technical Institute students who are searching for a career that allows them to care for themselves and their families.
