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 in prior years.

This past year’s 2020 theme was“Moving Forward,” highlighting prominent issues affecting the nation through an Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) lens, as well as providing attendees with actionable items and key takeaways to affect change for themselves and for others. These sessions were held with 100% virtual programming and engaged individuals across the country.

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.
