Who are the New American Children? They are the sons and daughters of immigrants who have come to the U.S.: a land of opportunity, where hard work could be rewarded if not in this generation, then in the next; where education can lead to economic stability.

Either way, they are growing up in a country whose future depends on their success.
With support from the Foundation for Child Development, JCCF is creating and gathering resources that can assist journalists in telling the stories of New American Children. In this section, you can access news and inspiration, recent interdisciplinary research and best practices - our peer-to-peer knowledge network - where journalists share what they learned covering these issues and communities. We are launching this "vertical" with the hopes that you will find it useful, but will also contribute your own stories - the ones you report and the ones you experience.
