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 year’s theme is “Temperature Check: Our Work Isn’t Over”. As our communities continue to grapple with a prolonged health crisis and rise in hate crimes these sessions will address how the myriad of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) identities and experiences can be used as tools of empowerment and activism to create sustainable and immediate change to uplift the communities around us.

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.
