Woori Center believes in the importance of empowering Asian American youth as our future leaders of change. We thus offer our Youth Leadership Program throughout the year. This program serves as a political home for high school-aged Korean and Asian American students, wherein they can explore their identities, learn about Asian American history and resistance, engage in meaningful dialogue, translate curiosity into action, and grow as young leaders. Examples of topics we have discussed in the program so far include the Model Minority Myth, Asian American Feminism, Race and Im/migration, Intersectionality, and Anti-Blackness. 


Please contact for more information about our Youth Leadership Program.
