​한인생활상담소 (KCSC)는 King County Best Starts for Kids의 지원을 받아 퓨젯 사운드지역에서 우리 아시안계 미국인 사회 전반에 걸친생활 건강에 부정적인 영향을 미치는 부당한 문제에 대해 고등학생과 어른들의 네트워크인 YouthKAN을 새롭게

오픈합니다.

1) YouthKAN은 고등학생들로 구성된 청소년위원회가 리드하고 있는데, 이들은 학기 내내 매주 만나서 이야기를 나누고 정책과 다양한 문화의 변화를 위한 전략을 워크샵을 통해 협의하고 있습니다.

YouthKAN에 대해 더 자세히 알고 싶다면 www.youthkan.net로 방문하십시오.

KCSC는 매해 여름, 청소년들의 정체성 개발과 공동체 변혁에 초점을 맞춘 야영 캠프 프로그램인 Camp YouthKAN을 시애틀

지역의 고등학생들을 위해 개최하고 있습니다. 

 

2) WeKAN은 중학생과 그들의 보호자 사이에 의사소통 능력, 의식, 상상력을 키우고 끈끈한 동료애와 세대간 올바른 관계 성립을 돕는 취지에서 만들게 되었습니다. 한국계 중학생들은 매달 앝 공방, 격주 멘토링, 또는 지역사회 구성원들과 일대일 과외와 멘토링에 참여할 수 있습니다. 더 자세한 내용을 알고 싶으시면 deborah@kcsc-seattle.org으로 문의하십시오.

YouthKAN 

With support from King County Best Start for Kids, YouthKAN, a council of 13 high school youth from the Puget Sound Region, was formed in 2019. The Council works to mobilize both students and community members towards action on injustices that impact the health and wellbeing of our Asian American communities. YouthKAN meets throughout the school year to share stories and to strategize for policy and culture change. To learn more about our work, the council, or to get involved, please visit www.youthkan.net. Stay connected with our work on Instagram.

Each summer, KCSC hosts high school students from around the greater Seattle area at Camp YouthKAN, an overnight camp focusing on identity development and community transformation. Please stay tuned for more information about Camp YouthKAN for 2021! More information will be available late spring/early summer.

WeKAN 

WeKAN seeks to create strong peer and intergenerational relationships by building communication skills, awareness and imagination among middle school students and their caregivers. Korean middle and high school youth may participate in monthly art playshops, bi-weekly mentoring sessions, or one-on-one tutoring and mentorship with community members. WeKAN programming will resume in Spring 2021, please stay tuned for more information on how to get involved. For more information, please email deborah@kcsc-seattle.org.
