Promoting and Preserving the Lao Culture in the Fresno area
LAO CULTURAL CLASSES
AT A GLANCE
Our mission is to preserve and promote the Lao culture. We provide free Lao cultural classes (Literacy, Culture, Classical Music, and Dance) on Sundays. These Classes provide youths and adults the opportunity to learn about Lao culture and traditions. It is run by dedicated volunteers. We believe culture awareness helps build self-esteem and boost confidence to the individual and their family. Our goal is to showcase the Lao culture through dance and music to bring awareness and appreciation for the Lao American people.
The Lao Community Cultural Center of Fresno (LCCCF) was established in 1997. We are located at the Lao Dhamma Sacca Temple in Fresno, California. LCCCF is a non-profit organization, 501(c)(3). We are funded through generous donations from LCCCF members, Dhamma Sacca Temple members, students, parents, and the community, and various fundraisers. LCCCF sponsor a variety of programs throughout the year such as Youth Education and Cultural Program, Family Bereavement/Support, Miss Lao Pageant, Kong Toum Cultural Group, and Annual Lao New Year Celebration. Our Youth Education/Cultural Program is our program focus.
Our program would not be as successful without the efforts of our amazing volunteers and generous donations from the community who believe and support our mission. Volunteers are working tirelessly to maintain all of these programs. We hope to get more support from the community by getting more generous donations and volunteers. We welcome and encourage you to come check out our program and facility.
