Participants have been Viet youths from all walks of life, along with volunteers, corporations, sponsors, speakers, trainers, city, state, and federal officials, young professionals, and students. Activities have included an annual leadership development project, Camp Len Duong, an annual Youth Excellence Recognition Luncheon, and a health initiative titled Walk for Wellness.
