Developing Future Leaders

JACL recognizes the importance of developing future leaders for the organization and the Asian Pacific Islander community. To meet that goal, the JACL creates and sponsors leadership programs specifically geared toward student, young adult, and young professional empowerment. This includes increasing involvement of young professionals through campus outreach and networking, promoting debate and action around contemporary issues such as international relations, political activism, social media and global citizenship, and building leadership skills through professional development and conferences.
