Education

Education allows us to reach our greatest potential and prepare us to participate in a nation and economy that continues as a global leader. For some Laotian Americans, "model minority" is just a myth since educational attainment is a far bigger obstacle than meets the eye.

LANA seeks to help Laotian Americans build a stronger future through education. We've compiled information and resources here that will help future Laotian American leaders of tomorrow get ahead today.
