Announcing NAKASEC’s Change Begins with YOUth and Political Youth Ambassador leadership programs for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) youth in Northern Virginia!

Change Begins with YOUth is a four day summer retreat at Virginia Beach that aims to empower youth to take progressive action and mobilize youth to become community leaders leading up to this year’s critical state election.  From July 5th to 8th, youth will participate in workshops, discussions on social justice issues impacting Asian American communities, and teambuilding.  This program is open to high school- and college-aged young people who are 16 years of age or older, and the program participation fee is $25.

NAKASEC also invites high school students to apply in the Fall for the Political Youth Ambassador program.  This program seeks to empower our future leaders and take initiative in uplifting voices of the AAPI community.  Students will engage with Asian American voters through phone banking, door knocking, and community outreach leading up to the November 7th General Election in Virginia.
