MISSION STATEMENT - Established 2008
To create a sustainable self-reliant community, we train the next generation to prepare for the challenging academic environment and community leadership. Easy access to affordable education for all is our priority. Neighborhood revitalization, environmental sustainability, food for hunger program, charity fundraiser, cultural/festival/sports/educational events and civic engagement are key components of our volunteerism. We promote multicultural activities/events and foster cultural learning/understanding among diverse ethnic groups and racial backgrounds. In addition, we prepare an environment for the public to have a chance to network, build a connection in the community, be informed of international affairs, and learn foreign cultures/languages.
