Koreatown Youth & Community Center

Image_202012161728

Opportunity Description: Once COVID-19 hit, parents have been left scrambling looking for support in caring for their children. As a result, the Koreatown Youth and Community Center launched a new in-person full day program for K-8th grade students. Help diverse K-8th grade students complete their homework, guide them through projects and activities, support the instructor with overall classroom management or co-lead activities, and provide general administrative support to the afterschool program. Training is provided!

Research has shown that every child is just one caring adult away from being a success story. KYCC’s youth programs serve 500 children a year, so your time and energy can mean that one more child will have a better chance in life with just a few hours a week. We’ve found that our volunteers get just as much, if not more out of building this relationship with kids who would thrive with just a little more attention.

Mission: The Koreatown Youth and Community Center was established in 1975 to support a growing population of at-risk youth in Los Angeles. Today, KYCC is the leading multiservice organization in Koreatown, supporting children and their families in the areas of education, health, housing, and finances. Most of the clients served are first generation immigrants from Asia and Latin America. Committed to serving the diverse population of Koreatown, we offer all programs in Spanish, Korean and English.

COVID-19 Protocols:
  • All youth participants must do a temperature and wellness check upon arrival. We also take their temperature as they leave. Any students who have an irregular temperature or even mild symptoms (runny nose, itchy throat, etc.) are asked to stay home.
  • Volunteers must do complete a wellness check upon arrival.
  • We sanitize student desks and supplies frequently throughout the day and a final time during closing.
  • Handwashing also occurs multiple times throughout the day. The entire facility is professionally disinfected once a month, sometimes more if needed.
  • Face shields, masks, gloves and hand sanitizer are all available for volunteers.

Please note, we have two sites that are hosting volunteers, the second site that is not listed is at 1230 S. Menlo Ave Los Angeles, CA 90006.
