Video for Youth and Families
A New Day is a 24 minute video that shows refugee families and youth discussing their new lives in the US. Be Who You Are is a shorter 9 minute version that just focuses on youth. They are available in English, Farsi, Nepali and Somali.
Topics include goals, changing roles and responsibilities, discipline and the importance of learning to speak English. These videos could be shown to refugee families overseas who want to see what their lives in the US might be like. It might also be useful for somebody new to the field of Cultural Orientation to learn of some of the challenges facing refugees as well as CO providers working with families and youth.
