Making Vietnamese rolls with the students and mentors

Time: 6:00pm-8:00pm

 This program pairs you up with a boy or girl from the Chinatown YMCA for one entire year through a screening process. You are required to meet with them for one-three hours per week, go to events, invite them to events, tutor them in a subject in school or just hang out and talk.  Over time, they will learn some life skills and develop socially as well as culturally. The Rotary Club of S.F. Chinatown is a proud sponsor of this ongoing mentorship program. contact Rich Swart -
