Lao School and Youth Activities
The Lao community in the nation's capital felt a need to preserve the Lao language and culture. Mrs. Khoune Souvannavong began teaching Lao language in 1994. After her retirement, we have had many great teachers that continued to teach students who have interest in learning Lao language and culture dances.
Lao language and culture classes are offered on Sunday afternoon from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Classes are free of charge, but small contribution appreciated.
Students eligible are from age 6 and up. Classes are held at:
Willston Community Center
6131 Willston Drive
Falls Church, VA 22044
School opens during regular school year and closed for summer, but youth activities may continue all year round if there are enough youth registered.

Other Youth Activities
LAWA students could perform for events if time and location and for causes that deemed appropriate by LAWA Board and parents' availability.
The Youth Forum allows our youth an opportunity to voice their concerns and help set directions for their community needs.
