Youth Program: Calling for Youth Leaders as Organizers

AAUC is proposing to host a half day youth program prior to the regular 2022 National Civic Leadership Forum (2022 NCLF) from 9 am – 3 pm on September 11 at the Paris Hotel & Casino base on securing significant interests and ownership from AAPI youth groups.

The purpose of the Youth Program is to provide an opportunity for our AAPI youth leaders to organize, work, coordinate and form networks with youth of other AAPI ethnicities on a civic leadership program.

AAUC is calling for 5-8 youth leaders of all AAPI ethnicities to lead and organize the 2022 NCLF Youth Program. They will be given a budget to organize the event. They have the responsibility to design and coordinate the program under the main theme of the 2022 NCLF: “AAPI – the Great Awakening”. The program should attract youths from as diverse a community as possible with a target attendance of 50+ youths.

Those interested should contact Khanh Tran (he/him/his) khanh.g.tran1@gmail.com the coordinator of this youth program ASAP before July 23, 2022.
