2020 AAPI Youth Summit: COMING SOON SPRING 2020
2019 AAPI Youth Summit: Rooting Our Stories, Rooting Ourselves
The AAPI Youth Summit brings together AAPI students from across campuses to engage in leadership development, share ideas, and strengthen AAPI unity. The summit engages students with practical workshops, critical discussions, professional networking, and distinguished guest speakers. The summit aims to increase the leadership capacity of AAPI students to advocate for changes affecting their experiences and communities.
"These are the times to grow our souls. Each of us is called upon to embrace the conviction that despite the powers and principalities bent on commodifying all our human relationships, we have the power within us to create the world anew."
— Grace Lee Boggs
How can we bring our histories, our communities, and our identities into our work as Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) students, professionals, and community members? At our 3rd annual AAPI Youth Summit, you will have opportunities to discuss these issues and more. Join us for a one-day convening to examine how drawing from the power of our roots can shape new imaginations for the future. The summit will include a keynote, workshop sessions, and time for networking. Please stay tuned for more information!
