If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, consider being a mentor or coordinator for the Southeast Asian Student Coalition’s legendary Summer Institute. It’s a weeklong educational experience with an emphasis on teaching a relevant political history to high schoolers predominantly from a Southeast Asian background. They connect with their community from across the country, peers and elders alike.
There’s a little boastful promoting here because I am one of the founding of the members and planners for the Summer Institute from way back 2002-2003, so with that I can tell you it’s worth supporting.
Hello Beautiful Community!
As the 2015-2016 SASC Summer Institute (SI) Co-Directors, we are excited to announce the release of the SASC SI Coordinator Applications for SI 2016! The success of each SI is largely credited to our community members, who dedicated their time, donations, sweat, and love to SASC SI.
Summer Institute is a program under the Southeast Asian Student Coalition (SASC), which was established at UC Berkeley in 2000 by an ambitious group of college students who saw the need to address issues in the Southeast Asian community. Summer Institute (SI), one of the coalition’s major annual events, was formed in 2002 when these organizers wanted to step beyond the needs at Berkeley to incorporate the communities they come from. SI is an all-expense paid five-day program where high school students and community members from all over the country come together to share and learn about their culture, hystory, and identity as well as receive resources about higher education.
