The Formosa Association of Student Cultural Ambassadors (FASCA) is the first step in helping your teenager become a distinguished Asian American. During three days of training, they will learn through leadership, teamwork, community service, and cultural experiences and expand their worldview. They will develop cultural awareness and uncover their potential. Once training has been completed, they can join FASCA and receive a unique opportunity to continue learning about Chinese culture and enhancing their leadership skills over the next 2 to 4 years. Through this two-way development track, your child will become a more competitive applicant for colleges. We are always ecstatic to see a youth stand out in their leadership and humanities studies, and we invite those who achieve their goals to visit Taiwan and be recognized by the Overseas Chinese Affairs Council of Taiwan.
To register, please visit FASCA website, or call 510-666-4838.
