Bridging Taiwanese Heritage

Discover Taiwan Team

Community Services


With Discover Taiwan, Fremont Taiwan School aims to introduce Taiwanese culture to Bay Area's youth through monthly presentations on art, traditions, and delicacies. After each 1 1/2 session of presentation, children will bring home a handcrafted treasure as a reminder of the cultural experience.

Please join us for many sessions of fun at Castro Valley Library on the dates below. All programs are held from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM, unless otherwise noted.

For information, please feel free to contact the team at discovertaiwan.fts@gmail.com
