Message from the Board President
When Light of Cambodian Children, Inc. was founded in 1998, the agency's founders had envisioned helping not only Cambodian youth in Massachusetts and the New England states, but also underprivileged, hardworking youth in Cambodia.
Now as LCC approaches its tenth year of existence, it is fitting to reflect on the people, members, volunteers and funders that have greatly contributed to our progress. With their dedication and support, LCC has been transformed from a volunteer-run agency to a professional organization that concentrates on serving youth from all ethnicities in local communities
More than ever, we are passionate about ensuring that the needs of our youth are the impetuses behind our mission. We are continuing to provide social and educational services to at-risk youth and their families as safe alternatives to gang involvement and crime. We encourage Cambodian and other minority youth to seek higher education, become self-sufficient, and serve as positive role models in our communities. LCC is offering scholarships to outstanding students from low-income families while at the same time establishing a scholarship endowment fund. In addition we are expanding our services to include mentoring, arts and culture, interactive leadership sessions, sports.
With all the planning and optimism, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our staff, executive director, board members and volunteers for their hard work. I would also like to extend my gratitude to our funders that trust and continue to support LCC.
Finally, I encourage those who wish to get involved with and volunteer for LCC to contact us at your convenience. For the interest of our youth and communities, we truly look forward to working with you.
Best wishes for every success,
Keto Tan, President
