BENEFITING: LAO-AMERICAN ORGANIZATION OF ELGIN INC
Hi Everyone! Welcome to our donations page.
The Lao Youth Leaders is a direct service program of the Lao American Organization of Elgin, 501(c)3 non-profit organization, in the Elgin, IL. Our mission is to help empower the youth and provide them the opportunity to grow and develop their leadership skills.
In the summer of 2016, the Lao Youth Leaders plan on co-sponsoring with the Lao Heritage Foundation, an event that will provide an opportunity for the youth to learn traditional Lao instruments. Following the week-long instructional sessions, the students will perform a concert for the community to showcase their talents.
Our goal is to give the youth the opportunity to learn about the history and culture of Laos through music and the arts. This event will be the 2nd annual Midwest Lao Music Camp. The first camp was held in Milwaukee, WI, hosting 30 students from Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The Elgin community is proud to host the 2nd annual camp. Please help the Lao Youth Leaders and Lao Heritage Foundation raise funds to purchase traditional instruments from Thailand and Laos. These instruments are all hand-made and reflect the traditional design of our culture.
