Koreatown Youth and Community Center - Korean organization in Los Angeles CA

Koreatown Youth and Community Center

KYCC (Koreatown Youth and Community Center) was established in 1975 to support a growing population of at-risk youth in Los Angeles. Today, KYCC is the leading multiservice organization in Koreatown, supporting children and their families in the areas of education, health, housing, and finances. We believe that if the family is healthy, our community will thrive. KYCC is committed to making Koreatown a safe and beautiful place to live and work.

The mission of KYCC is to serve the evolving needs of the Korean American population in the greater Los Angeles area as well as the multiethnic Koreatown community. KYCC’s programs and services are directed toward recently immigrated, economically disadvantaged youth and families, and promote community socioeconomic empowerment.

KYCC was founded in 1975 as a small storefront program by a group of community members wanting to provide after-school and summer programs for recently immigrated Korean youth, who were struggling with poverty and language barriers.

For over 45 years, the organization has gone through a remarkable evolution, not only in size, but also in the diversification of its services and target populations.

After the L.A. civil unrest in 1992, KYCC expanded from being an ethnically focused agency to one that included the surrounding community, aligning with its evolving needs.

Today, we serve more than 11,000 people each year at eight locations throughout Koreatown, most of whom are first generation immigrants from Asia and Latin America.
