Asian American Leadership Institute and “Future Leaders” Program
UCA has established “Asian American Leadership Institute” to address the dire need of training Chinese and Asian Americans in a full range of areas, from leadership training, to how to be more civically engaged; from how to run campaigns such as local school board, to how to run non profit organizations. The thrust or priority of this institute will be training Asian American young generation on how to improve leadership skills and capacity. “Future Leaders” is a very first DC-based one week training program of the Institute to focus on developing leadership capacity of the younger generation. Specifically, it is to find, train and track the most motivated Asian American youth, typically high school junior or seniors, who have demonstrated leadership or public service track record.
