Washington Leadership Program

Washington Leadership Program

Through weekly sessions over the summer, the Washington Leadership Program introduces students to Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) leaders in public service who can inform and inspire students’ own civic engagement. Through panel discussions and participatory activities, this free program served over 220 individuals this past year.

This year’s theme is “The Power of You,” and focuses on how the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community have and can define grassroots advocacy, community mobilization, and social and technological entrepreneurship to support the issues that impact themselves and their communities the most.

The Washington Leadership Program gave me valuable insight to various aspects of our nation’s politics and gave me the chance to meet several inspirational individuals. Being a part of the CAPAL family made this summer memorable.
