Hosted by Bridging Youth & Children's Services (BRYCS) and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)
With the new school year underway, communities nationwide will begin to notice a new population of undocumented children within their schools and may be perplexed at how to assist these children and their families. Together with Bridging Refugee Youth and Children's Services (BRYCS), USCCB's Children's Services will offer an overview of the humanitarian crisis regarding the current influx of children migrating to the United States, as well as some of the reasons behind their flight from their home countries. Information regarding school enrollment, including some of the challenges and best practices, will be discussed. Finally, since many of the children have experienced some type of trauma prior to coming to the United States, the webinar will also offer an introduction to trauma-informed education.
