refugee youth

Posted By: Cathryn Magno on April 9, 2004
 
This is a topic of great concern and interest to me - thank you for raising it, and thanks to those who have already responded with good suggestions. I will add to them, having worked at the International Rescue Committee for two years directing a national program for resettled women and youth in the USA. There are several documents available on the IRC website that might be of interest - a Blueprint for refugee integration that addresses education issues for youth, and six (or eight?) community needs assessment reports from around the country that include sections on the needs of youth. Some include successful strategies, such as having a Refugee School Liaison (usually employed by the school district) to work with teachers and refugee parents and students.

The site address is www.theIRC.org, and the documents should be under Community projects (the actual program was called Community Collaboratives). I hope they are of help to you.

Regards,
