BENEFITING: Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, Inc.

EVENT DATE: Apr 05, 2012

THE STORY:

The White House has selected the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center’s youth video submission as a Champion of Change honoree. Champions of Change is part of President Obama’s “Winning the Future” initiative that seeks to recognize ordinary Americans who aim to make an impact in their communities.

The video was chosen from among 200 video entries submitted nationwide and received 11,000 votes. As a Champion of Change, the youths involved in the video have been invited to the White House to accept the honor as well as discuss their experience with White House officials. The event will take place on April 5, 2012.

BCNC’s Chinese Immigrant Student Leadership (ChISL) is a new leadership initiative for Chinese immigrant students at Charlestown High School focused on building their capacity to effect positive change in their school. The video features 12 youth who are part of this unique BCNC-Charlestown High School partnership that is funded in part by the Hyams Foundation. In the video entitled, “My Voice – Their Stories,” the teens share their own story of immigrating to the United States. They talk about the difficulties of communicating in a new language; the challenges of finding a community here in the U.S.; and the anxiety of being immersed in a new culture. The video project and the leadership program is spearheaded and coordinated by BCNC staff member Chu Huang.

Watch the event at www.whitehouse.gov/live on April 5th!

BCNC is asking for your help to raise $8,000 to cover airfare, hotels, transportation, and meals for 12 youths and 3 adults for three days. Please give generously to make this once in a lifetime trip possible for the youth. Every gift counts!
