This Immersion & Excel club is to connect kids with broad needs and interests, from orienting new immigrant students to the American public education system to helping each other learn English and excel in sciences.
As a recent immigrant, Alisa Wang came to the United States as a junior in middle school. She faced many challenges in a very closed knit school where children had not much exposure to kids from another country.
She started this club to help kids make a new life in this country
