PAASSC encourages and supports families through their journey in raising bilingual children.

About Us

PAASSC.com is the online presence for the Parents of African American Students Studying Chinese organization. While we provide a variety of meet-up opportunities for children and families in the Bay Area the goal of our website is to encourage and support families in their pursuit of a bilingual education for their child.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to increase the number of African American families that are enrolling their children in language immersion programs by raising awareness of the benefits of being bilingual and providing a network of support, research and resources that will assist families in navigating this process.
