The Asian Pacific Youth Leadership Council (APYC) is a leadership initiative of the Council on Asian-Pacific Minnesotans, a state agency created by the legislature to advise them and the governor on issues of importance to Asian Pacific Minnesotans. The initiative addresses the lack of Asian Pacific youth voice in civic engagement by leveraging cultural and historical experiences. At the same time, the youth council addresses the fact that the Asian Pacific community is on average 10 years younger than the general population and investment in this group is instrumental to Minnesota’s future.
#APYLR2013 is a collaborative effort of: Minnesota State Colleges and Universities, Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, Vermillion Community College and the Council on Asian Pacific Minnesotans.
