Hi Robin, a couple of questions..

  • What do you mean by "safe spaces"; what dangers do the young people you are helping face?
  • Isn't there a danger that "safe spaces" could hinder efforts to assimilate into the wider community?

1. "Safe Spaces" means where they feel belonged, an environment for growth, connection, and a place to have fun. A place or a space that keeps them away from their involvement in gang violence, drug abuse, sex trafficking, . An environment where they get to make friends and spend time in creative processes like arts, sports, education, leadership development,...
2. No there is no danger where "safe spaces" could hinder efforts to assimilate into the wider community. It would, on the other hand, support them to connect with other community members by creating an environment of respect, empathy, and willingness to learn about other communities.

Thank you for explaining. Makes sense.

Think of this youth center like : Children Forum and Youth Friendly Center (YFC) in the camps.

Thank you for asking!!!

This is a good concept. I can only hope that a majority will benefit from this. Keep up the good work, @Robin!

The topic of creating 'safe spaces' for our youths itself looks like a misnomer. That begs the question, who or in what ways are they 'unsafe' from?

The American opportunity is in their court. There is free school and loans for college. For all employable youths there is a job as long as they want to work.

If the issue is of acculturation, then it is the elderly population among us. They are still in a cultural shock. They miss community life which is how they have grown up. Language barrier has further alienated their lot, that it may not be too wrong to say that they are isolated within the house. In America, the focus is on the 'house' not the 'home'. Our elders are caged in the house while for the youths the planet itself is the limit. 

If at all, any thing should be done, they should not be lopsided. Priority must be given to the elderly. Their time is running and their need is urgent and genuine.
