~~ UNCON YOUTH ~~
UNCON is pleased to announce its youth group called UNCON Youth. UNCON Youth group is officially created on 9/26/2015. Our goal is to bring together all the youths of Nepalese origin and provide a platform for them to socialize and work for better Nepal and Nepalese community.
What we plan to do:
Help UNCON with upcoming projects by providing volunteer services as advised by UNCON youth Coordinator
Organize at least two fund raising activities in the DFW area every year.
Select projects in Nepal, raise funds, and use funds to help the needy people in Nepal. (UNCON will financially support the youth team if needed.)
Organize a youth group meeting once every three months, and remain connected with other volunteers.
Prepare materials for UNCON’s website – Youth Corner
UNCON Youth team is proud to be part of the UNCON. Our volunteers were busy in helping guests during UNCON's event on 9/26/2015.

UNCON Youth Computer Lab Is Now Officially Established
USA-Nepal Community Outreach Network (UNCON) in collaboration with GK Foundation, Chitwan, recently established a new Computer Lab at Himalaya Lower Secondary School, Jagritichowk, Bharatpur. The Lab is now equipped with three brand new computers and is named as UNCON Youth Computer Lab.
