Life in the Promised Land: Resettled Refugee Youth Struggle in the US


The Women’s Refugee Commission traveled to Phoenix, Arizona in August 2009 to learn about young people’s experience resettling to the US. In particular, the delegation looked at what educational and skills training programs young people had access to while they were displaced that helped with their transition to the US—and what additional services would have been helpful. The aim was to learn what more could be done during displacement to better prepare refugee youth for life in the US.
