The East Coast Asian American Student Union is a nonprofit whose mission is to inspire, educate, and empower those interested in Asian American and Pacific Islander issues. You may have heard of the annual ECAASU conference, the oldest and largest Asian American collegiate conference in the United States.
In 2013, the High School Ambassadors Leadership Program (HSALP) was started in an effort to expand ECAASU's constituency to high school students. I recently heard from Olivia Lu, who has been mentoring a group of eight students from the DC and New York metro areas in AAPI issues and advocacy work.
This year, the plan is to send the HSALP students to the 2014 ECAASU Conference, going down next month in Washington DC. In order to make that happen, they need to raise funds to the finance the trip. Can you help get them to the conference?
Help get ECAASU's HSALPers to ECAASU 2014!You can help raise up the next generation of AAPI leaders. The goal is to raise $910 by February 14. For further information about the High School Leadership Ambassadors Program, the students, and the fundraiser, head over to Facebook. To make a donation, go here.
ECAASU's High School Leadership Ambassadors Program needs your help in getting our students to the 2014 ECAASU Conference in Washington DC! Our students from the DC and NY metro areas have been learning and engaging in AAPI issues and advocacy work, and creating their own dialogues and discussions about growing up Asian-American today. They are also starting up various projects to engage and inspire those in their communities to learn and get involved in the Asian American Pacific Islander community. Help send ECAASU's high school students to the conference! The next generation of AAPI leaders is coming your way. #HSALP2ECAASU
