Kizuna and JACL Pacific Southwest District’s Youth CAN will present “The Ultimate Culmination” on Tuesday, Aug. 23, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. (doors open at 6 p.m.) at Centenary United Methodist Church, 300 S. Central Ave. in Little Tokyo.
The event is a wrap-up of what students have achieved throughout the summer sessions, honoring their hard work and dedication to helping and improving the Japanese American community.
The Youth CAN Project is a community engagement program geared toward high school students. The goal is to build four basic competencies among youth — passion, leadership, organizing and advocacy.
Participants network with community leaders and gain knowledge, tools and skills to be successful in community service. They put their skills to the test through meaningful community projects.
