For Youth & Adult


Youth Education

Young Adult Service Program
During the Young Adult Service Program (YASP), Asian American high school and college gain first-hand experience serving their communities and learn the importance of public service through internship placements at various nonprofit organizations and local elected officials’ offices across New York City. This immersive 7-week summer program also includes various workshops and events, such as a career panel and a resume workshop, to enrich their learning and growth. Co-sponsored by The Korea Times.
Dr. Lee Hoon Scholarship Program
The Dr. Lee Hoon Scholarship was established in 2020 through the generosity of Dr. Cheol Hoon Lee, a retired dentist and first generation Korean immigrant whose own education was only made possible by the support of various scholarship programs. Every year, we award economically disadvantaged students of Korean heritage who have demonstrated academic excellence and leadership in service to their communities with scholarships to support tuition payments for their first year of college.
SAT Prep
Every summer, we offer an affordable SAT test preparation program in partnership with Awaken Education, an educational service company serving the wider New York/New Jersey area. Need-based financial aid is provided to students who have demonstrated academic excellence.

Adult Education

English Classes

We offer English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes to help non-native speakers improve their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. After a diagnostic test, students will be placed into classes most appropriate for their skill level.

All classes will be held virtually until further notice.

Through the generous support of the NYC Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD), classes are free of charge.
