Settlement and migration can be stressful for youth (13-19). Adjusting to a new country, can present a list of challenges which if unaddressed, can lead to negative outcomes. These challenges include:

  • Intercultural conflict
  • Intergenerational disconnect
  • Financial instability
  • Contact with the Criminal Justice system
  • Lack of belonging

For racialized youth in particular who are struggling with their identity, these challenges can become overwhelming. At a time in which youth are most vulnerable, mental health issues due to the stress of migration can lead to additional difficulties if not addressed in a culturally sensitive manner.

This course is developed to assist parent's, caregivers and adult allies support youth as they navigate from adolescence to adulthood. The course will provide helpful strategies to understand the needs of your teenager, empathize with their experiences and also validate on your vulnerability.
