Are you passionate about reaching out to young people and the unique life questions they face?
The teens in the refugee community often go unnoticed. Like other teens they deal with life questions of identity and meaning, magnified by their experience as third culture kids. They grow up in between cultures and are often the bridge between their family and the host society, holding responsibility beyond their years. In addition, they carry with them past traumatic experiences as well as generational trauma. As a result, they often tend towards either high resilience or complete dysfunction. However, teens also have endless interests and are eager to grow.
You can be a part of empowering youth to pursue growth and navigate life.
This could look like: classes, fun events, facilitating conversations about culture, walking alongside their families, tackling difficult life questions, and connecting teens with Greek peers.
