CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

WHO WE ARE

Kandelia, previously known as VFA, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit community organization providing direct programs, opportunities, and tools to address systemic inequities so immigrant and refugee families and communities can thrive without having to compromise values, heritage or ethnicity. Leveraging our convener model and years of experience rooted in the Vietnamese community, we center youth in our work—championing and building them up so they can be their full authentic selves.

Kandelia is seeking applicants for three at-large positions on our Board of Directors. We are looking for individuals aligned with our organizational values and committed to serving immigrant and refugee communities.
