    Migrant Youth Integration Project

    CARECEN’s Migrant Youth Integration Project empowers recently arrived youth through civic, social, and educational engagement. We provide holistic workshops that ensure recently arrived youth, ages 14-24, have access to essential integration support services, and in turn, become effective community leaders. Participants can also access other Parent & Youth Center programs, such as College Head Start, Youth Leadership, and English Language Learner instruction, developing their leadership skills & increasing confidence in their academic pursuits.
