President Barack Obama launched a new program that earmarks $2 million to ensure hundreds of refugee students in upstate New York receive tutoring and support finding part-time jobs, Breitbart reports.

The federal money is part of the $21 million Summer Opportunity Project launched by the White House; 10 percent of those funds will help 400 refugees in Utica, N.Y., outside Syracuse, in a project called New Americans Career Pathways, according to Syracuse.com.

The refugees will receive tutoring in Math and English, summer work experience, and part-time jobs the rest of the year, according to a White House fact sheet.

The refugees were brought into the U.S. with help from the United Nations as part of the president's refugee program.

The remaining $19 million will be spread across 10 other cities and communities nationwide to help American youth find work for the summer.
