Project background: Valley Youth Group founded with the goal to be multi-culture and across different races. Most of our activities in the last year were Chinese oriented as it was the easiest approach. It will take extra effort to reach families with different background. With the help from a couple of CSUN administrators and professores, especially with the help from Dr. Yan Searcy (https://www.csun.edu/social-behavioral-sciences/yan-dominic-searcy) and Dr. Weimin Sun (https://www.csun.edu/china-institute/directors-message), we launched the project to build up the communication bridge with local Africa America community in the beginning of the 2020 fall semester.
