The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal and identify a funding source to implement a summer institute for Cambodian American youth. The goal is to promote transgenerational transmission of the knowledge, experience, history, and legacy of the Cambodian genocide while concomitantly striving to increase academic attainment of second and third generation Cambodian American youth.
The subsequent generations of Cambodian diasporas are confronted by the poignant loss of history, memory, and narratives of the Khmer Rouge genocide. This program will enhance the likelihood of the participating youth's ability to overcome transgenerational gaps and create discourse with their parents, grandparents, or relative guardians. Equally important, the program will allow youth to build and improve leadership and self-advocacy skills. The cultivation of these qualities and skills are essential for disenfranchised youth to successfully navigate through a taxing education system.
