The BCNC Bamboo Circle is competing in the 2019 Boston Dragon Boat Festival to support Asian and immigrant youth!
We're raising money to provide youths ages 13-18 with year-round youth development, college access, and leadership programs to develop the 21st century skills they need to thrive in college and beyond.
BCNC serves 170 Asian and immigrant youth each year from locations in Boston and Quincy.
The BCNC Bamboo Circle is the young professionals group of Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC). BCNC empowers Asians and new immigrants to build healthy families, achieve greater economic success, and contribute to thriving communities by providing a broad range of innovative and family-centered programs and services to more than 8,000 children, youth, and adults every year. This year, we're competing as part of the Ohana New England family.
"Rowing is the future of water travel, and this program will ensure our children are prepared for it. Also, since Daenerys brought dragons back into the world, the youth will need to know how to row on one." - S. Wong, JD
