We bring together students from different colleges and high schools to build unity and solidarity amongst Vietnamese American youths in Southern California, in the United States, and in the international Vietnamese community.


We represent the diverse and dynamic Vietnamese youth population by encouraging interaction, participation, and activism in the Vietnamese American community. We also encourage a growth of leadership and service amongst Vietnamese youths.


We promote awareness of the Vietnamese culture, language, and history. UVSA organizes a wide range of social, cultural, and education activities to help our youth develop a sense of Vietnamese identity.

Tet Festival is coming February 12-14, 2016.
