Central American Resource Center (CARCEN)

CARECEN’s Migrant Youth Integration project aims to successfully integrate recently arrived, migrant youth into the civic, social, and economic life of their new communities in the Pico-Union area of Los Angeles.

To this extent, CARECEN will continue providing holistic services and collaboration through our legal, advocacy, organizing, and educational programs so migrant youth can receive the support they need. CARECEN’s Migrant Youth Integration Project will provide dedicated and experienced Coordinators and Organizers who will be overseeing the project’s implementation. In addition, CARECEN will hire a FTE Case Manager, as well as sub-contract for onsite mental health workshops. CARECEN is poised to lead these efforts as our staff has developed considerable experience in understanding and addressing migrant youth’s various needs.
