WHAT IS SUMMER LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE?
Together in this summer’s CYI Summer Leadership Institute, 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.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until 11:59 PM EST on FRIDAY June 22nd! If you have ANY questions at all, please contact Janine Liu (email@example.com) or Brian He (firstname.lastname@example.org). ***
