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.

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.

  1. Last year Anthony Perez wrote about the lack of Hispanic student participation in student leadership roles at Alhambra High school. Maybe some of this is the reason why:

    Where are the Hispanic/Latino community organizations or city leaders mentoring and training hispanic students to become leaders? Where are the Hispanic/Latino community resources for afterschool tutoring and academic support?  Its not happening because our community doesn't put its own priorities for this into action.  The Asian community here sets the success of its kids as a priority and puts time, energy and money into action to make that happen.  They don't rely on the Alhambra Unified schools to be the only place for kids to learn.

    Where are the community based Hispanic /Latino run and organized afterschool academic programs? (other than the Thunderbirds football, or Little League, or AYSO) If they are out there I would love to hear about them.  I could give the info to parents who will be yelling at me because I won't sign off on the football progress report because their kid is failing my class and they what them to play the game this week. (usually they just stop giving me the report after that).

    If you want to see the results of this lack of parental and community support just look at the STAR test results for AUSD and see the gap between the Hispanic and Asian scores. The schools can only do so much when the community and families don't make it a priority.
