Continuing its commitment to nurturing the next generation, the A/P/A Institute is proud to present the 14th Annual Asian Pacific American Forum on Youth Culture — a peer-facilitated, educational program for high school students in the NYC area. With leadership and educational training from the A/P/A Institute, a core group of high school students facilitates a full day of workshops, performances and open discussions related to youth and A/PA identity, history, community organizing, racial profiling, politics, art, and media.
Integral to APAYA youths’ experiences is the philosophy that identity development in combination with community learning fosters future leaders who are able to reflect critically and take action.
The Forum is open to high school students and educators.
