The Center of Educational Technologies to Assist Refugee Learners (CETARL) was founded in October 2020 through a convergence science award from the State of Kansas. The mission of CETARL is to provide free, accessible, education for all by developing digital-game based learning platforms for children, youth, and adult learners. The center is working to improve the lives of people who resettled in the U.S. as refugees or asylees. The center believes in a holistic approach across the lifespan, i.e. in order for the digital-game based learning platform to be effectively used, the learners need to have financial support, improved mental health and well-being, access to healthcare, and equal opportunities for education.
