New York Tibetan Services Center (NYTSC) is a New York-based nonprofit organization dedicated to the social and economic mobility and academic success of New York City immigrants originating primarily from Tibetan, Himalayan, and Southeast Asian communities – many of whom are refugees and/or members of marginalized and disadvantaged communities.
Goals We work with a simple goal – to assist immigrant communities in their quest for a better future to the greatest extent possible through the provision of services and access to resources.
- To provide essential programs for immigrants to help their social integration and adjustment to life in a new country through guidance and resources, while continuing to maintain close ties to their native communities and culture.
- To offer a bilingual (English and native language) curriculum for the children for refugees, to ensure their cognitive development and academic success while maintaining an appreciation of their cultural heritage.
- Through education, language, and individual attention, bringing empowerment and independence to the New York Tibetan, Himalayan, and Southeast Asian communities as a whole.
- Mission Statement NYTSC’s mission is to promote the wellbeing and success of Tibetan, Himalayan, and Southeast Asian communities in New York City, communities that suffer from lack of access to language and culturally-appropriate services. Our organization will offer education, social services, and empowerment acitivities that respect cultures and promote integration. Various programs will be offered – educational programs tailored specifically to children and parents, childcare training and parenting workshops, ESL classes, cultural activities, after-school homework help for children, academic advisement, youth-focused activities, legal assistance, job training, and US citizenship preparation, as well as one-on-one case management provided by social workers. Programs will be held in English, Tibetan, Spanish, Hindi, Nepali, and Greek. Through our work and mission, it is our hope to guide every single client to a successful life in America.
