The Bamboo Circle, BCNC's young professionals network, is racing in the 2017 Boston Dragon Boat Festival! The festival will take place on the weekend of June 10-11, 2017 on the Charles River. The team aims to raise $6,000 to support BCNC's Youth Center, which serves 150 youth annually to participate in leadership, college access, and mentoring programs. Founded in 1969, BCNC is the largest nonprofit social service provider dedicated to Asian families in the Greater Boston area, supporting over 2,600 children, youth, and adults each year at four locations in Boston and Quincy. The mission of BCNC is to ensure that the children, youth, and families we serve have the resources and supports they need to achieve greater economic success and social well-being. BCNC helps families access the resources and services available to them, provide opportunities for them to learn and acquire skills, and create a community of mutual support and encouragement.
