Asian-American Outreach Program

The Asian American Outreach Program, known locally as the "Lotus Program," is a program of the Marconi Older Adult Program, housed in the South Philadelphia Boys & Girls Club.

Established in 2018, this program serves older adults that speak Cantonese, Khmer, and Mandarin. The program is operated by Lynn Tang, the Asian American Outreach Coordinator, who provides a variety of in-person and virtual case management services.

In partnership with the Cambodian Association of Greater Philadelphia, Lynn also provides educational programming to our Marconi Older Adult Program members, promoting a culture of inclusion and cultural awareness.
