Race4Youth is JWOC’s biggest annual fundraising event and will be held this year from October 1 – November 30. Centered on the theme “The Leaders of Tomorrow – Thriving Beyond COVID19”, we invite our global community of supporters to make a donation that will enable us to continue fulfilling the potential of Cambodian youth in education, employment, and engagement with their community”.
We award scholarships that enable gifted youth from low-income families to attend University in Siem Reap by paying for their tuition fees and textbooks. Additionally, at JWOC’s purpose-built Learning Center, we focus on developing soft skills and building capacity to overcome the challenges youth may face in reaching their goals. We also provide a platform for motivated change-makers to tackle social issues to improve their confidence and increase their level of civic engagement.
Better Futures Program
We give current high school students and those who have recently graduated the guidance they need to set or reach their future goals.Through a tailored curriculum of English, Computer, Life Skills, Career Guidance and Youth Leadership, the students graduate from the program equipped with the skills, knowledge and motivation needed to succeed and make informed decisions about whether they want to pursue further education, vocational training, or work.
