Civic Leadership For Youth

Civic Leadership For Youth

CLPY is an intensive service-learning leadership program that trains youth and young adults in the Asian immigrant communities to become leaders who are catalysts for positive change in their communities.

We believe that youth, particularly those in immigrant families, can have powerful influences on their families and on their larger communities. In order to harness such potential of the young people in Asian immigrant communities, the Good Neighboring Campaign launched the Civic Leadership Program for Youth that integrates education, skill- building workshops, and experiential work within a community of peers and mentors in 2012. By mobilizing the youth to become active and effective citizens, we hope to solve problems faced by the immigrant communities from within and make positive impacts on the larger society.

“[CLPY] is different from other volunteer activities because we, the students, took the initiative to identify the problem that WE see and find a way to address the problem… We can be a part of changing the community that we care about the most” – Sophia Lee, 11th grade, South Forsyth HS
