In February 2016, 25 refugee youth gathered in Washington, DC to identify and discuss the biggest barriers they face adjusting to life in America. They analyzed the causes and impacts of each barrier and then discussed what could be done to fix them. Solutions ranged from what can be done better overseas in refugee camps to what can be done here by schools and local communities. These barriers, causes, impacts, and solutions all came from the refugee youth themselves. A supplemental webinar and blog further discuss these barriers.
