Children & Youth Development

Posted on

Do your children and teens need a safe place to learn and grow?
We support your children ages 2 to 18 years old in getting ready for school and becoming confident, responsible, and thriving individuals who contribute back to our community and succeed in a global society. If your children are new to the United States, we ensure that they develop with the social and emotional stability they need for adjusting to American society and experiencing a positive blend of cultures. We also encourage non-immigrant, non-Chinese families to join us for an enriching cultural experience!

Our five, age-based children and youth programs are a vital foundation that provides the skills for your children to succeed at school, and that support the family unit as a whole. If your family qualifies, these programs are offered either at a reduced cost or free of charge. We welcome students with disabilities!
