Creating Compassionate Schools: Supporting Unaccompanied Refugee Children

What is it like for an unaccompanied, undocumented child to be apprehended at the border, reunified and transitioned into the public education? During this webinar you will learn what happens when an immigrant child is taken into custody, the services available upon his or her release, and barriers with the education. In addition, the discussion will include cultural affirming practices that child welfare agencies can incorporate to better serve this population. Through video clips, case studies, group discussion, and a review of best practices, participants will gain a greater understanding of the strengths, and challenges facing these children and how to best meet their overall needs in an educational setting. In addition, best practices to support educational professionals to support them in working with this population.
