Youth Year-Round Leadership and Enrichment
Youth share a commitment to their communities by engaging in ongoing service projects and taking part in the annual National Youth Service Day. Family Involvement Workshops and the Annual Summer Community Fair provide parents with access to resources and knowledge to better understand their children’s needs as well as our regular teacher-family progress conferences often help ease the transition to a new culture.
The Chinese Community Center provides an exceptional youth program at a fraction of the cost because of generous funding from United Way, federal and local government agencies, and the contributions of corporations, local businesses, and individuals.
The Youth program is also made possible in part by CASE for Kids City Connections. City Connections is funded in part by the City of Houston, CASE for Kids, and Harris County Department of Education.
