Volunteering with children can be one of the most rewarding and meaningful experiences in life.

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.

Help diverse K-12th grade students complete their homework, lead mentoring groups, guide them through projects and activities, or co-lead enrichment activities. Training is provided!

To see our youth programs in action, you can see a video here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_F5zGEv4Fg) and to learn more about KYCC you can see a video here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KL4jMmE4WM).

Mission Statement

The mission of the Koreatown Youth and Community Center, Inc. (KYCC) is to serve the evolving needs of the Korean American population in the greater Los Angeles Area as well as the multi-ethnic Koreatown community. KYCC's programs and services are directed toward recently immigrated, economically disadvantaged youth and families, and to promote community socio-economic empowerment.

Description

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 low-income and recently immigrated children and their families in the areas of education, health, housing, and finances. Our volunteer opportunities range from short-to-long term, unskilled to skilled, for youth and adults, and ranging from everything from community research to tutoring to tree planting. Our work isn't possible without the support of volunteers, so if you're interested please don't hesitate to reach out to get started or learn more!
