Hello, EI Youth and Friends,

Greetings --

Jes and I hope you are well.

There is a change in the "Movie Day" for the immigrant youth (again)! I am sorry. I just found out early this week that I have been accepted into a great leadership program for immigrant professionals on March 8th and 9th! I want to use that leadership training experience to share with the immigrant youth leadership camp from July 17th to the 22nd.

Hence, I have to change the "Movie Day" to the following Saturday, March 15th. Hence, on March 15th, a Saturday, the "Movie Day" will be at Cuong and Jesecca's townhouse at 12 pm in Alexandria, VA.

We will provide the popcorn, beverages, pizzas, movies, etc. on March 15th. We look forward to seeing you all soon! Thanks for your understanding and for being flexible.

Have a wonderful day!

Warmest regards,

Cuong and Jesecca

Hello, EI Youth Leaders and Friends!

Greetings and Happy New Year!!

Jesecca and I hope you are well! We look forward to seeing the EI Youth this summer!

We miss you all very much!

Also, I want to share with you why we at EI are working hard to support you all to go to the best colleges/universities in the country.

According to a report in Reuters (a news organization) on January 16, 2014, please see the following paragraph:

"Students born into families that are in the bottom 25 percent of income (low-income families) have only a 9 percent chance of graduating from college. By contrast, students born into families in the top 25 percent of income (high income families) have a 54 percent chance of getting a degree."

Please continue to focus on your academic studies! We believe in you to succeed! Until this summer, keep up the great work!

Warmest regards,

Cuong and Jesecca

Hello, everyone!

Greetings --

Jes and I hope you are well!

I need your input and help regarding the Enlightened Initiative. As some of you know, I believe that immigrant parents play an important part and role with immigrant youth. I have a few questions.

1. How can EI help the immigrant parents?

2. What activities can EI do either before, during, or after the EI leadership summer leadership camp for the immigrant parents?

3. How can EI help the immigrant parents throughout the academic year when the immigrant youth are in school?

If you have any comments/ideas/suggestions, please email them to me at [email protected]. I look forward to receiving them. Thank you!

Have a nice weekend!

Warmest regards,

Cuong, Jes, and Lucie
