Building solid foundations for youth in turbulent communities

To do so, we provide a structured counseling and apprenticeship program with the following components:

B) regular sessions with a guidance counselor who is well versed in the experiences if unaccompanied refugee children and can help them make positive decisions
C) group workshops that build unaccompanied children's self-confidence and create a sense of community
