First Generation Children of Immigrant parents are navigating newness in this country on a daily basis and they are often doing it alone with little to no support or representation. Those who become system-involved find themselves navigating yet another challenge.

You will also learn strategies for acknowledging their experience, identifying assets and supporting their specific needs.
