IRC Youth Programs
|The IRC in San Diego is excited to announce our intent to submit an application to the Afterschool Division ASSETs Grant Program of California Department of Education to request a continuation of funding for the IRC Afterschool program at Crawford High School. Thanks to past support of the ASSETs funding, the IRC has created robust programs for youth (see below).|

Hiep Ha, who arrived from Vietnam just a few years ago, initially struggled with English and getting involved in school activities.
Now that he’s participated in the IRC’s Connect2Work program and focused heavily on improving his communication skills and College Prep, Hiep was accepted into San Diego City College’s EOPS (Extended Opportunity Programs and Services) which prepares incoming students for the rigors of college and provides supplemental classes and support.
Since starting the program this June, Hiep has received a Spirit Award, Perfect Attendance Award, and the Academic Achievement Award.
We look forward to seeing Hiep’s continued success.
