SLI 2017 Application
Thank you for your interest in applying to Summer Leadership Institute! We strongly encourage all youth to apply, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, class, or location of residence, etc.

We expect all participants to:
-Attend EVERY Saturday workshop (including the Chinatown Beautification Day weekend, date TBD in August.)
-Complete the weekly "initiatives," small weekly assignments that are relevant to the workshop topics
-Have an open mind and be prepared for a very engaging summer.

There are 7 SLI workshops that will take place every Saturday from 11AM-4PM at Hunter College, roughly from July 15th to August 26th. All workshops are FREE and lunch is provided - just bring yourself and be present!


Together in this summer’s CYI Summer Leadership Institute (SLI), we hope to build an intentional space for youth to engage with social identities, team building and critical thinking skills, and project initiatives to address community issues we are passionate about. SLI consists of a series of weekly workshops tailored to New York City youth to discuss issues centered around Asian-American history as well as contemporary Asian-American concerns. We will be discussing the intersections of our identities, including and not limited to race, class, gender, nationality, and language. Rooted in our personal experiences, we deepen our understanding of how we can be involved and creative members in our communities.

Please submit this application by 11:59 PM EST on MONDAY July 10th! If you have ANY questions at all, please contact Vincent Fang ( or Linda Luu (
