Helping Latino immigrant youth lead productive lives in the U.S.

Amiguía’s Goal: To educate immigrant youth about their rights, to enhance their well-being, and to engage them with their communities.


Amiguía Americana is a resource center containing different interactive, fun and easy-to-use resources specifically designed for and/or already tested and used to help Latino immigrant youth living in the United States with tools to successfully adapt to various aspects of American culture, including navigating the American legal system.

Acculturation including immigration concerns can be complicated, especially for the young ones. Educating and informing immigrant youth can have a huge impact on their lives, in their ability to get a job, go to college, or even remain in the United States. It’s for these reasons that Amguía’s founder and humanitarian designer, Lien Tran, started creating and collecting resources designed to be immigrant children-friendly. We hope you find it useful and that you’ll share with us your feedback and ideas on these and additional resources.
