Asian American & Pacific Islander Initiative, Teach for America NYC Leadership Summit February 19 – February 20, 2016

The Teach For America Midwest region will host selected students to attend the Asian American and Pacific Islander Leadership Summit (AAPILS), whose mission is to cultivate and increase the leadership skills of AAPI undergraduate students. Teach For America is uniquely positioned to make a difference in the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. While AAPIs comprise nearly 5 percent of the total enrollment in public elementary and secondary schools, they represent less than 1.5 percent of the teachers. AAPILS will drive the work of engaging undergraduate students in partnership with regional and national organizations that focus on working with and serving the AAPI community. Click here to apply.
