Space for Youth

Helping youth create & sustain healthy relationships with their families, friends, and significant others.

Building Healthy Relationships

Many of our South Asian youth struggle with balancing both South Asian heritage culture and ideals in relationships, expectations from family or friends, and US culture and ideals. Some suffer from or witness abuse at home and end up choosing abusive partners & friends. Some have difficulty communicating their own thoughts with their families. Some feel bound by obligations, some rebel to break free.

Our goal at SEWA-AIFW is to listen, support, and help youth understand and cultivate a healthy relationship with their families, friends, and significant others. We provide support for those suffering from abuse; space for youth to discuss with and learn from their peers; & counseling and referrals for specific services. We also have an LGBTQ specific group – SAQL.

Brown Breakfast Club

Brown Breakfast Club is a youth-led group for youth ages 16-24 only.  Meetings are held each month and a facebook group is how we stay connected!

The meetups are a mix of discussions & presentations with a focus on mental health and cultivating healthy relationships.

South Asian Parents Together

SAPT is our for parents group. We will post events and create dialogue on our facebook group to stay connected!

Podcast: Life without Limca

Another platform to bridge the gap between young people and their parents/elders is a podcast. This podcast will address many of the struggles young south Asian Americans face including dating, mental health, parent relations. There will be a big focus on talking about various family dynamics and how to deal with unhealthy situations without the attachment of societal stigma. For this project we are working youth from the University of Minnesota to optimize engagement and reinforce the concept of listening and showing willingness understand to the experiences of young people.

This podcast is available on the following platforms via Anchor.
