Asian Pacific Family Center
Asian Pacific Family Center (APFC) will be hosting leadership summer seminars called L.E.A.D. (Leadership, Education, Advocacy, and Diversity). L.E.A.D. is open to high school youth in the San Gabriel Valley ages 13-18 years old. This event will be held on Friday, August 19th, 2011 from 9am-5pm, and Saturday, August 20th, 2011 from 9am-12pm at Asian Pacific Family Center located at 9353 E. Valley Blvd, Rosemead CA 91770. A small breakfast will be provided on both days, and lunch will be provided on August 19th only. Youths who attend both days will be given a Certificate of Completion, as well as volunteer hours, if needed. Cost is free.
These leadership seminars will introduce and discuss the issues that are present in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Topics include: history and context, leadership and communication, culture and identity, and learning how to effectively make a difference in the community. Youths will be able to learn and express their opinions on Asian American and Pacific Islander issues. L.E.A.D. will also have guest speakers, including a Japanese Internment Camp Survivor, who will come and share her story.
Deadline to register has been extended to August 12, 2011.
