Join Grantmakers for Children, Youth & Families (GCYF) and Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees (GCIR) for a webinar exploring a range of issues relevant to immigrant children, youth, and families, including increasing access to early learning programs, addressing gaps in secondary and postsecondary education, and expanding family economic mobility. These issues and others are outlined in GCYF's Making the Link white paper, Planning for Our Shared Future: Investing in Immigrant Children, Youth, and Families.
This white paper—authored by Felecia Bartow, Director of Programs and Research, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees—examines immigrant-specific demographic trends that have particular relevance to children, youth, and family (CYF) funders. It also makes a case that today’s investments in essential programs and services for immigrant children and youth are critical to the country’s future workforce. Finally, it explores the unique needs and contributions of immigrants in the United States and offers CYF funders a set of recommendations for responding effectively to the needs of this population in their local communities.
