The Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF), the nation's only pan-Asian children's advocacy organization, is currently recruiting high school students of Asian descent to apply for the 2011-2012 cohort of its youth leadership group, the Asian American Student Advocacy Project (ASAP). Read on for further details:
About ASAP: ASAP aims to strengthen leadership and advocacy skills among NYC’s Asian Pacific American high school students with the goal of creating a college and career ready culture for our community. We hope to foster students’ awareness of the issues in the community, sharpen their critical thinking skills, and build their understanding of advocacy and policy making.

Who we are looking for: ASAP youth leaders are chosen from across New York City and represent the diversity of the Asian Pacific American community. They come from all different ethnicity backgrounds including but not limited to: Vietnamese, Filipino, Japanese and Korean to Pakistani, Guyanese, Bengali and much more. Applicants are also diverse in culture, gender, sexual orientations, age, ability, class, and immigration history and life experiences. Through ASAP, our leaders have developed many different skills and gained valuable experiences.

ASAP is open to all NYC public high school students of Asian descent who are not in danger of failing classes. English Language Learner students are also encouraged to apply. Interested students must complete the application in full and include a letter of recommendation. Upon completion of the program, participants will earn a certificate, a letter of recommendation, and a stipend.
Hey, young people. You have a voice. Do you want to know how to effectively use it for positive change? Are you one of the youth leaders they're looking for? For further information, and to download the application for the Asian American Student Advocacy Project, go to the CACF website here.
