Journeys Within Our Community

Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

Based on the principle of ‘Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow’, our focus is education, including opportunities at local universities, JWOC’s Community Center and in the villages surrounding Siem Reap, Cambodia. We have learned that focusing on education is where we can make the greatest difference in helping Cambodian youth to better their future and become leaders in their community.

Empower Our Community!

Our Programs

Scholarship Program

The ability to attend university and achieve a higher education is well beyond the financial reach of many students in Cambodia even if they are able to graduate from high school. JWOC awards university scholarships to Cambodian students who are the driving force behind everything we do!

Youth Participation Program

We will be running Youth Leadership training to give our students the opportunity to be change-makers by running their own projects in the community. By partnering with young people and helping them participate in decisions that affect them, we can strengthen their ability to advance human rights and development issues across health, education, and employment.

Free Classes Program

The JWOC Free Classes program aims to improve quality education for low-income families within the community through language and skill-based lessons. To achieve this goal, we ensure that the community has access to free quality education at our community centre!
