Newcomers Coordination and Support
The program supports newly arrived immigrant youth primarily in San Rafael, Novato and West Marin. Interventions are intended to build on their strengths and resilience in order to help them succeed in school and beyond. A coordinator provides assessment, linkage to resources, and short-term case management for students and their families in San Rafael secondary schools. The program also provides newcomer groups that focus on issues such as grief and loss, acculturation, and building resources and supports.
NEW! Please view the recently released Universal Newcomer Toolkit for all schools in the County. Building upon the current momentum and utilizing best practices and model programs, this toolkit presents key needs, recommendations, and foundations for successful Newcomer school-based supports and programs.
Organizations providing Newcomers PEI Supports include: Bay Area Community Resources, Huckleberry Youth Programs and North Marin Community Services.
