Our Future is Youth

The Asian Youth Center of New York was established in 1988 as a nonprofit organization under The Council of Korean Churches of Greater New York with the support and services of the Korean American businesses and government agencies.

Our mission

Today, young people are experiencing unprecedented chaos. Although it seems to live a happy life because of material abundance, there is a lot of poverty mentally. Adolescents in immigrant societies suffer from a variety of issues including identity as a minority, stress due to school achievement and admission, addiction problems that cannot be comforted by human relationships, bullying with friends, and depression. It is a fact that young people have no parents, brothers and friends to share their concerns, and have no friends to help them in crisis situations.

Our vision

It is the responsibility of the church and society to hold and rectify these confused and lonely youths, and it is the interest of adults.

The Asian Youth Center strives to provide social welfare, education, as well as mental and spiritual health development opportunities to the Asian youth and their families in New York.

Our office is located in The Council of Korean Churches of Greater New York building in Douglaston, where we hold our meetings, services, and a number of our ministry events.
