NC Asian Americans Together is excited to host Visible Not Divisible: an Asian American Pacific Islander Youth Leadership Institute. This 3-day program for AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) youth ages 15-25 includes workshops, keynote speakers, grassroots field work, and opportunities to lead and plan individual programs with area mentors.
Participants will gain hard skills such as lobbying and voter registration as well as interact with local professionals in the field, community leaders, and elected officials. By creating their own programs and work plans, youth will have the opportunity to show independence, leadership, and critical thought based upon their interests regarding public policy and community engagement.
Throughout the program, participants will examine Asian American identity in the U.S. south, its historical relevance, and its implications for future change. This knowledge will be used to develop the skills necessary for leadership and personal development as well as collective community growth.
By empowering youth with knowledge and experience in political advocacy, community organizing, and local legislation, NCAAT hopes to activate and support a new network of AAPI leaders across NC. Participants will have the opportunity to continue work throughout the year with NCAAT as an NCAAT Student Ambassador or NCAAT Affiliate.
A registration fee of $50 includes breakfast and lunch for the three days, access to all keynote speakers, as well as all educational materials and resources. Scholarship information is available upon request. Limited spots available!
