2023 Asian Pacific Youth Leadership Project

2023 Asian Pacific Youth Leadership Project

The APYLP works with Asian and Pacific Islander students in California to build on their

understanding of what it means to be Asian and Pacific Islander American youth in

today’s culturally and ethnically diverse society. The APYLP high school conference

offers group workshops on leadership development, cultural identity and awareness, the legislative process, and public speaking skills as well as an opportunity to participate in mock legislative sessions and to hear from elected officials and prominent speakers

from the Asian and Pacific Islander community.

Fifty juniors and seniors will be selected from the statewide applicants to participate in

this conference. The conference will be held both virtually and in person from March 30

to April 2, 2023. The three virtual conference days are on March 30 and 31 and April 2,

while the one in-person conference day will be Saturday, April 1 in Sacramento. The

APYLP will pay all expenses for the participants, including any travel, lodging, and

meals, through sponsorships from private corporations, higher education institutions,

professional organizations, and other individuals.

The organization is especially interested in reaching students who have leadership

potential but have difficulty developing or realizing that potential due to language,

economic, cultural, or other barriers. Applications must be submitted or postmarked no

later than January 31, 2023.

The APYLP is celebrating its thirty-third anniversary in 2023 and could not have

achieved its successes without the support of California educators over the years. For
