About migrant youth

Migrant youth (aged 12–24 years) are a sub-set of recent migrants in New Zealand who may face particular settlement challenges.

In addition to the challenges that may be experienced by all New Zealand youth in their transition to adulthood, migrant youth may face additional challenges related to settling in a new country and adapting to a new culture.
