Hands-on learning for kids with the Vietnamese Friendship Association

January 14, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

We can all agree: when kids – regardless of ethnicity, religion, or socioeconomic status – do better, we all do better. More importantly, education builds a strong foundation that our community can grow on.

Emerging Leaders will partner with the Vietnamese Friendship Association to lend a hand in building that foundation. The Vietnamese community in Seattle is a key part of what makes our city ours, and the VFA is dedicated to making sure it’s a community that thrives. Unfortunately, recently arrived refugee and immigrant youth face incredible barriers to success and self-sufficiency, often falling more than a year behind their English-speaking peers in school.

Volunteers will have fun with kids in team-building academic and service-learning activities – in a time when a lot of kids are uncertain about the future, there’s no time to wait when it comes to helping them build their own.
