Asian American Justice Center presents Youth Empowerment Fund

Calling all APIA youth who are active in projects focused on serving the APIA community!  The Asian American Justice Center’s Youth Advisory Council is offering grants up to $500 through their Youth Empowerment Fund.

If you’re interested, you can download the application here:  For more information on the Youth Advisory Council, visit their facebook page.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and should be submitted at least two months before the funding is needed so that there will be enough time to review your submission.   It sounds like a great opportunity–time to start thinking up some great projects and programs!
