Thank you for your interest in Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC's 6th annual Youth Leadership Summit!

The Summit is a three-day leadership development program for high-achieving college students dedicated to addressing issues impacting AAPI communities and will take place Thursday, September 19 to Saturday, September 21, 2019, in Washington, DC. The Summit brings together 15 to 20 student leaders for three days of public policy advocacy trainings and leadership development workshops focused on civic engagement. It provides a unique opportunity for young advocates from across the country to both interact with their peers as well as learn from, and network with, national leaders. Through interactive workshops, hands-on activities, and visits to Capitol Hill, Summit participants build advocacy skills and gain a deeper understanding of how advocacy and activism affect policy decisions. Student leaders will learn from experienced policy advocates and have opportunities to interact with legislative staff of U.S. Senators and Representatives.
