Build a Foundation for Friendship with Syrians

The Syrian Culture Guide is designed for people like you who are welcoming Syrians and seeking to support their transition to the United States.

People from the U.S. and Syrians have many incredible similarities we can celebrate. At the same time, our unique personalities and cultural backgrounds create complex differences that can be both enriching and challenging to navigate. We created the Syrian Culture Guide as a resource to help you better understand some key elements of your Syrian friend's culture and to give you a foundation from which to build an effective and mutually enriching relationship.
