Unaccompanied Migrant Youth Service Needs and Gaps in the New York Metropolitan Area

Share and Comment:

Unaccompanied migrant youth are one of the most defenseless populations in the New York Metropolitan Area. Despite New York’s vibrant history of immigrants and its leadership to make progress in addressing the needs of these populations, many challenges still exist. Migrant youth flee their home countries due to dangerous situations such as violence, domestic abuse, and exploitation. Youth seek safety in the United States; however, they often face many hardships once they enter the U.S. and try to adapt to life in the country. Although many changes to immigration policy have occurred since the initial research for this report, the key findings and recommendations remain crucial to providing assistance to this highly vulnerable population.
