New American Youth Health Resource

Welcome to New American Youth Health Resource, a comprehensive resource for young adult immigrants and refugees in America seeking to embrace a healthy lifestyle. We understand that adjusting to a new country can be both exciting and challenging, and we’re here to help you navigate the path to good health and well-being. With our vast collection of resources, we hope to serve as a central hub for answering your questions about physical, social, sexual, and mental health.


DatingForward is an interactive choose-your-own-adventure story about a first-generation New American college student named Diarra as she navigates life on campus, balancing academic responsibilities, sexual health, alcohol & drug use, and more. Your choices along the way determine the outcome of her journey through some of the most challenging decisions faced by young adults. The project is aimed at youth ages 18 – 25 years old and consists of several videos that users can interact with depending on the decisions they make.
