Youth Leadership Week is a conference in Washington, D.C. that will be held June 25-29, 2018. During the course of the week, attendees will learn about leadership and advocacy in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community and beyond. Participate in workshops, collaborate with students from across the nation and work with nonprofit D.C.-based AAPI organizations that are paving the way for our communities!

What will you gain from YLW?

  • Learn hard skills to organize and advocate (balancing a budget, Excel skills, how to lobby/advocate for pressing issues)
  • Enhance your knowledge of key AAPI issues and initiatives
  • Meet your congress representatives to talk about the issues your care about

Registration coming soon.
