Youth Community Project Team (YCPT)
YCPT is a student-led and operated group of local high school students dedicated to creating positive changes in the Korean American community. Through weekly discussions and analyses of the community’s needs, these young volunteers determine, design and conduct their own projects and hone their team-building and leadership skills while assisting members of the community with special needs.
KAFSC provides a safe and studious study environment for students who are unable to afford afterschool programs, but want to improve their academic skills. Study group sessions will occur on Monday nights from 4pm-7pm at KAFSC. Students must be attending high school and living in Queens. Both students and parents will be screened through an in-house interview with the Youth Program Coordinator. Tax income and report cards must be provided at time of interview.
Unni – Hyung Mentoring Program
This “big sister-big brother” program matches young clients ages 14-18 with an adult, typically a young professional or older college student, who provides friendship and guidance. Through careful recruitment and screening of potential mentors, youngsters are matched with caring individuals who serve as both friend and role model. These positive relationships enable the mentors to help their little brothers and sisters to broaden their interests, cope with identity issues, improve self-esteem and develop school and career goals.
