We bring together students from different colleges and high schools to build unity and solidarity among Vietnamese American youths in Southern California.


We represent the diverse and dynamic Vietnamese youth population by encouraging interaction, civic engagement and leadership development in the Vietnamese American community.


We promote awareness of the Vietnamese culture, language, and history by organizing wide range of social, cultural, and education programs to help our youth develop a sense of Vietnamese identity.

Tet Festival is coming January 27-29, 2017.
