Cambodian Student Association

Rochester Area High Schools

This program is designed to support the development of a Cambodian Student Association that will help kids and families work through challenges so they can grow and integrate as a family into the Rochester community.  The students will support each other academically with the assistance of adults running the program.  Along with social and academic support, afterschool groups will also learn traditional dances, than use the knowledge of these dances to facilitate their communication and interests in Cambodian culture and history with their parents. This is intended to be a pilot, and if successful with the Cambodian community, may be replicated with other immigrant communities in Rochester.
