AAFSC Contributes to New Aspen Institute Brief on 2Gen Immigrant & Refugee Families

April 28, 2022

In 2021, AAFSC joined the Aspen Institute to discuss the connection between providing culturally-appropriate services and seeing stronger outcomes when working with immigrant and refugee families in a panel discussion called “Cultural Competency Secrets to Success.” In an accompanying brief, “Growing Language Skills with Immigrant and Refugee Families’‘, the Aspen Institute focuses on the linguistic challenges many face as they try to acclimate to life in the United States when their native language is no longer dominant in their surroundings. From designing ESOL programs and curricula around the needs of families to recognizing and accounting for dialects when sharing resources or providing services, this brief takes an in-depth look at how we can use #2GenImm approaches to help families overcome the language barrier. You can read the full brief, below.
