Coalition for Asian American Children and Families

AAPI-LEAD (Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders- Learn. Engage. Advocate. Dream) is a 4-day youth conference that brings together NY’s AAPI and allied youth to discuss the experiences and issues most relevant to AAPI young people.  AAPI-LEAD aims to develop AAPI youth’s understanding of and relationship to their own identities, deepen the connections between social justice and equity in relation to systems and community, and equip youth with the tools to advocate for themselves, their families, and the wider AAPI community as a whole.

Youth will also have the opportunity to apply to the Asian American Students Advocacy Project (ASAP), CACF’s youth leadership program, by coming to this conference.
