Title:Meeting Youth Immigrant and Refugee Health Needs
Grant Type: Activation Fund
Clark University will work with the African Community Development Corporation, Fairbridge International, the Southeast Asian Coalition Center, Family Health Center and the Worcester Youth Center to address the needs of immigrant and refugee youth in Worcester.  These young people find themselves caught between the culture and values of their parents and the culture and values of their new community.  This project will begin with research, including a literature review, key informant interviews and listening sessions with immigrant and refugee youth.  Some of these young people  will be trained to assist in the data collection and analysis.  This research will form the basis of after-school programming.  By the end of the year, pilot programs will be started with plans to integrate them into other youth programming throughout the community going forward.
