Children of Immigrants Webinar Series II (2019)

In 2017, the Foundation for Child Development’s Young Scholars Program (YSP) launched its inaugural Children of Immigrants Webinar Series, a three-part webinar series highlighting issues related to children of immigrant families/immigrant children, presented by former YSP grantees. For over 10 years, YSP focused on the early learning and developmental needs of immigrant children/children of immigrants. The goal of the series was to increase awareness of the existing YSP research, what is known, and the implications it has for policy and practice. Realizing the continuing need to understand the psychosocial implications of immigration, deportation, and parental separation on young children, the Foundation has commissioned a second series consisting of three additional webinars.
