About the Program

Woori Center believes in the importance of empowering Asian American youth as our future leaders of change. As such, Woori Center offers a Youth Leadership Program throughout the year. These meetings serve as a political home for Korean and Asian American high school-aged students to learn about their identities, contextualize Asian American history and resistance, engage in meaningful dialogue, translate curiosity into action, and grow as young leaders. Examples of meeting topics include the Model Minority Myth, Asian American Feminism, Race and Im/migration, and Anti-Blackness.
