Program Overview

Program Description:
Arrive Date: 6/23/2013 End Date: 7/20/2013

Students will travel to the beautiful yet increasingly conflicted city of Barcelona, Spain, to learn first-hand how globalized cities—such as Barcelona, an economic powerhouse of Spain and popular point of destination for Latin American and African immigrants—are dealing with the increasing numbers of “foreign youths,” particularly those “at risk” for delinquency and those already caught up in the juvenile justice system. Students will study how globalized cities, such as Barcelona, provide immigrant and first-generation immigrant youths with relevant social services, prevention programs, job training, educational opportunities, and legal services to curb what many locals see as the increasing menace of “foreign youth gangs” that threaten the larger society. The course uses a mix of classroom learning – lectures, guest lectures,and small group discussion—along with experiential visits to local as well as regional centers and organizations that work with immigrant youths, “at risk” youths, and delinquent youths in particular.
