API Community Leadership Institute 2015-2016 Mentor Application
The Asian Pacific Islander Community Leadership Institute (API-CLI) was founded in 2011 with the vision of building the leadership capacity of community leaders and of building collaborative alliances and partnerships among Asian Pacific Islander (API) communities to address racial and ethnic disparities. The Institute is led by Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization/Asian Family Center (IRCO/Asian Family Center) in partnership with the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon (APANO). It is one of six culturally-specific leadership programs funded by the Meyer Memorial Trust through the Coalition of Communities of Color.
As part of the API-CLI experience, all fellows are matched with an appropriate mentor, an Asian and Pacific Islander professional or community leader. Mentors support API-CLI participants in developing their leadership skills, provide a one-on-one space to reflect on the participant's API-CLI experience, and share expertise from their own leadership journeys and experience addressing racial disparities for API communities in Oregon.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are selected as a mentor, we will make every effort to match you with a participant. At the same time, please be advised that there might not be a good participant match this year.
Application closes Friday, August 7.
