Programs offer by TAC:
Tibetan Language Classes:
Sundays 11AM to 2:00p.m.
We have young Tibetan students who are attending the classes, and we have four different class levels. The teachers are generously giving their time to teach the Tibetan language to help preserve our Tibetan culture and traditions. Also, we have the parents assisting in arranging lunch and refreshments for the students every Sundays.
Tibetan Culture Dance and Songs Classes:
Sundays 3PM to 5PM
We have a Tibetan cultural dance class every Sunday after 3:00 PM. This is a very valuable program deliberated to provide an opportunity for our Tibetan children to learn cultural dances, songs and music of Tibet. The primary goal of this program is to generate interest in children in learning things on Tibetan culture.
Saturdays: 11:00AM to 2:00PM
Our primary mission is to support the academic development of Tibetan youths, K-12 students. This program started since fall of 2008. Tutors assist students with their homework and provide learning activities for new or challenging topics. All of the tutors have college degrees and appreciate the opportunity to interact with the young students and families of a unique culture.
ACES(Alliance for Culture and Education Support) Scholarships:
Scholarships – $1,000 scholarships are awarded twice a year (Fall and Spring semesters) to one Tibetan student each semester. To qualify Tibetan students must be attending a college or university in Illinois full-time (12 or more hours) and maintain a C or better in all subjects. This scholarship money is a financial help to parents, who are mostly in low paying service jobs, fill in the gaps that loans and other scholarships don’t cover.
