Ger Youth Center

Dedicated to serving the children and youth in Northern California

Educational Program -Bi Mongol

“Ger” Youth Center’s education program is designed to assist children and youth to broaden their horizons and improve their knowledge of Mongolian language and Culture. The program also provides counseling, tutoring and assistance in applying for higher education institutions.

Mongolians have settled in increasing numbers in the SF Bay Area in the last 10 years, and the younger generations are fast becoming homogenized.  This change has been thinning the linkages of immigrant Mongolian families to their own culture and traditions. Mongolian language is becoming more of a second language for Mongolian children who are born and raised in foreign countries.

Therefore, “Ger” Youth Center is establishing “Bi Mongol” educational program to preserve Mongolian language and traditions, to expose our youth to that traditions/culture among the Mongolian-American youth in the SF Bay Area.

Students enrolled in “Bi Mongol” program will be introduced to Mongolian language, Literature and drama, History of Mongolia, Mongolian music, Dance and Chess. Mongolian Language for adult non-Mongolian speakers is available upon request. Please email for more information.
