Young People: Social Justice and Multiculturalism.
Guerra, Carmel, Comp.
This document contains ideas and information to assist community workers in coming to terms with the realities of ethnic diversity; to make a deliberate and positive commitment to multiculturalism; and, within a social-justice framework, to deliver programs and resources to young people in a way that genuinely accommodates such diversity. It is divided into four sections. The first three sections provide a framework for looking at the interaction of social justice and multiculturalism and provide background information to the debate about migration and culture. The fourth section provides exercises to assist in the development of the knowledge and skills needed by community workers to help enrich their everyday contact with young people from non-English-speaking backgrounds. These exercises are designed to be practical and to be worked on in conjunction with the relevant reading sections. Contains 36 references and a list of publications and videos. (GLR)
