Resources: A Toolkit for Unaccompanied Youth


The purpose of this guide is to support newcomers to California when enrolling in school as well as accessing healthcare and other critical resources. This toolkit is especially helpful for youth who recently arrived in the United States without their parents and the individuals and organizations navigating them.

This toolkit was produced by Community Justice Alliance (“CJA”) with funding from California Department of Public Health. CJA extends deep gratitude to the impacted youth in California who are pictured throughout the toolkit and guided the development of responsive resources, Cid & Macedo for its valuable contributions, and Augie Blancas for the vibrant photography.
