Korean-American Parents Association (KPA) was founded in 2003 primarily to assist new immigrants from Korea to settle in the greater tri-valley area. Since then KPA has grown to be a non-profit organization that educates Korean culture to local communities, provides opportunities for Korean-Americans in the tri-valley area to serve the community, and promote active local community involvement.
KPA recently installed Korean book collections in the City of Pleasanton Library with a support from the Overseas Koreans Foundation and the Consulate General of Korean in San Francisco. This was possible largely due to KPA’s commitment to bring Korean culture to enrich the city with diversity. The Korean book collection opening ceremony was held on October 10, 2015 in presence of the Pleasanton Mayor, Jerry Thorne, several City Council members, dignitaries from the Korean Consulate General office of SF, and Pleasanton residents. The opening ceremony was celebrated at the library with Korean traditional dances, Taekwondo demonstration, crafts, and Korean food.
KPA operates sixty book clubs, chamber orchestra, children’s choir, women’s choir, and hosts educational seminars for 1,000+ KPA members and others in the tri-valley area.
KPA is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible.
