PAASSC provides youth with a fun series of activities for African American youth learning Mandarin. We provide monthly outings filled with Mandarin language instruction and support. It is our goal that your child’s participation in these events will give them more confidence and comfort expressing themselves in Mandarin and building a community. Raising an African American child that speaks Chinese can sometimes feel very isolating!! Your child may be the only African American student in their grade or in their Saturday class. Your child is possibly the only person in your family that speaks Mandarin. Attend a PAASSC event to connect your child to a great group of Mandarin language learners throughout the Bay Area. Parents who do not live in the Bay Area are invited to join but the group’s activities will primarily be concentrated in the Bay Area. Thank you for your interest.
