Our unique programs at The Bittermelon focus on providing youth and families of Asian American identities a special space to address the specific needs of our Asian American community. Kids and teens are offered hands-on, peer-to-peer experiential learning opportunites that support building leadership, confidence, empathy and teamwork.

Save Our Indigenous Forest in Westchester County 

The youth leaders of The Bittermelon proudly stand with the indigenous elders and community leaders who are fighting to protect the sacred land of Buttonhook Forest in Chappaqua, Westchester County, New York - land of the Lenape. We hope the community will stand with us to preserve this land. Contribute to their GoFundMe here.
