Leadership Opportunity for Asian American HS students

CACF’s Asian American Student Advocacy Project is seeking students for our
fourth cohort of students leaders.

Educators, Youth Advocates, and Friends,

I hope this email finds you well and in good spirits. My name is Julia Rhee and I’m currently working as the youth advocacy intern at the Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF).   http://www.cacf.org  I wanted to inform you about a great leadership opportunity for Asian American high school youth in New York City that’s scheduled to kick off mid-late August.

It’s conducted by CACF with the vision of fostering youth leadership and skill building for a 15 week program held during the academic year. The program, ASAP (Asian American Student Advocacy Project) aims to strengthen advocacy skills with the goal of creating positive changes for the Asian Pacific American community. Students will be chosen from across the five boroughs and represent the diversity of the Asian Pacific American
community.

The innovative nature of the program calls for critically minded youth who are concerned with community issues and realize the need for increased action for APAs within the education system. Students from underrepresented communities and low-income households are strongly encouraged to apply and the new extended deadline for consideration is July 13th. Please note that all materials should be received by this
date.

The program is open to all NYC public high school students of Asian descent and interested students must complete the application in full and include a letter of recommendation. Upon completion of the program, participants will earn a certificate, a letter of recommendation, and stipend.

I’ve attached the application with this email and I hope you’ll forward it to potential candidates and other educators. Should you have any questions/comments, please feel free to contact me at (212)809-4675.

Thank you!

All the best,
Julia
