COVID-19 Emergency Fundraising

Can you imagine no visitors at Angkor Wat? Can you imagine what this means for so many of our students who are dependent on tourism for their jobs? Many young Cambodians, including a high percentage of JWOC students, have lost their jobs in the past month and are being forced to leave the city as they can no longer afford food and rent. The loss in tourism has also had a major impact on our ability to raise funds for our students and programs. Can you please help us right now with a donation? Every donation, big or small, will help our students get through this challenging time. Please click on the donate button below or to the side to help.

Journeys Within Our Community

Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow

Young people aged 15-30 make up roughly 30% of Cambodia’s population, but many youth still lack the skills needed to be successful in the workplace.  At JWOC, we believe that by partnering with youth and investing in their education, we can close this gap and help them fulfill their potential. 

Our Programs

Scholarship Program

We award scholarships that enable gifted youth from low-income families to attend University in Siem Reap by paying for their tuition fees and textbooks. Additionally, at JWOC’s purpose-built Learning Center, we focus on developing soft skills and building capacity to overcome the challenges youth may face in reaching their goals. We also provide a platform for motivated change-makers to tackle social issues to improve their confidence and increase their level of civic engagement.

Better Futures Program

We give current high school students and those who have recently graduated the guidance they need to set or reach their future goals.Through a tailored curriculum of English, Computer, Life Skills, Career Guidance and Youth Leadership, the students graduate from the program equipped with the skills, knowledge and motivation needed to succeed and make informed decisions about whether they want to pursue further education, vocational training, or work.
