Join us for a discussion that will focus on immigrant youth issues in New York City. We will hear from the NYC Commissioner for Immigrant Affairs, the Department of City Planning Commission and youth leaders from several organizations serving diverse immigrant communities.
We will explore the local policy landscape, as well as specific issues in particular immigrant communities. Funders will leave the session with a richer understanding of funding opportunities; a deeper appreciation of what to look for when making grant decisions; and a set of ideas on the role foundations can play in shaping policy, program and practice in this vital domain.
