APIA High School Leadership Conference [Announcements]

The Asian Educators Alliance (AsEA) is proud to announce its first ever High School Student Conference!!!

The Asian Educators Alliance (AsEA), an affinity organization for Asian/Pacific Islanders (API) is a national organization committed to creating opportunities for API teachers and school staff to meet, network and support one another. For the past 5 years we have held an adult conference, but this year we are hosting our first ever high school student conference! It will focus on leadership and activism. and should be a great event! The theme of the event is : unlearn . rethink . inspire . do something. It will be held March 7, 2009 at Lick-Wilmerding High School (San Francisco, CA) with registration starting at 9:30 AM and the conference running from 10-3. Our keynote speaker will be Dennis Kim from Youth Speaks. There will also breakout sessions, a leadership panel, workshops, and more!

We are excited for the opportunity to create this affinity space for API students from around the Bay Area. Our keynote speaker and our leadership panelists will be talking about the intersection of API identity and their own work in service to their communities. Our hope is to inspire our API students to become leaders (or expand their leadership) in their own communities and be of service (much in concert with Obama’s call to action). And the best thing is that it is totally FREE and lunch is provided!

It is an affinity conference open to all API high school students (including, of course, multiracial API kids). Please encourage any API high school students to attend.

Students can register on line here.

If you have any questions, please contact Jeanne Coyne Song – P: 510.534.0804 ext. 226 jcoyne@rdschool.org

See you there!
