Higher Needs Your Advice about Successful Employment Strategies for Young Refugees

Innovative approaches to refugee youth employment is a priority topic at the upcoming Florida State Consultation in February.  I’ll be presenting several sessions and hope to learn from your advice and good ideas as I prepare.

Are there special  job development strategies, community resources or job readiness techniques that work for you?  How do you help clients think about balancing their dreams of higher education with the immediate pressures of contributing to family self-sufficiency?  How do you adjust your approaches to working with clients to best help refugee youth (ages 16-24)?  Any specific best practices for working with younger Cuban clients?

If you would be willing to share your expertise in an informal email or phone call, please let me know.

Depending on how my presentation shapes up, I might be able to bring in a guest presenter or two via skype and could offer a modest honorarium to help make that possible.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
