The Catholic Diocese of Arlington Migration & Refugee Services (CDAMRS) engaged Community Science to assess the needs of refugee youth and their families in Northern Virginia and the issues faced by agencies in the area that serve these youth and their families. Parents and youth participate in focus groups while service providers are interviewed. The youth completed a questionnaire that assesses their risk and protective factors, based on a similar survey given to 6th, 8h, 10th, and 12th graders in Fairfax County, Virginia, in order to be able to draw comparisons between refugee and general population youth. Community Science revised the questionnaire to assess background information specific to refugee youth and edited the language to be more culturally appropriate. (2008–2010)
