This year, we opened an application for our inaugural class of YALA Fellows, a cohort of high school and/or undergraduate students who are passionate about social justice and youth civic engagement. Fellows seek to develop and apply an understanding of their own respective Asian-American identities to impact their local and national communities. Selected youth will have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in grassroots activism, youth organization, and social innovation.
We’re proud to introduce you to the sixteen 2018 YALA Fellows, hailing from 12 different states!
