Bluefields, Nicaragua, is a diverse and complex city that has a panoply of cultures and languages. Youth face complex issues due to geographic, cultural, and linguistic differences from the broader Nicaraguan society. This theoretical analysis and literature review considers the marginalization of youth as a threat that encourages migration away from the community, further exposing youth to a future of isolation. Migration theories are reviewed and linked to the role that education can play in reducing these dangers and reinforcing cultural assets of the Bluefields community.
