Immigrant Youth Task Force

The Los Angeles County Immigrant Youth Toolkit was created in 2020 to provide a centralized list of resources for recently arrived immigrant youths and their families in Los Angeles County. It is modeled after the national AAP Immigrant Health Toolkit, and is intended as a provider-facing resource, with information for medical providers, social workers, case managers, teachers or school officials and anyone else who may work with immigrant youth and families.
