Southeast Asian Student Coalition Summer Institute

Dear Community Members,

Want to be part of a life changing experience? Then join the SASC SI Committee!

What is SASC SI?

Southeast Asian Student Coalition Summer Institute (SASC SI) is a five-day, four-night summer program for high school youth. Within these days, the students experience their history, ethnic identities, culture, and struggles bounded by the War in Southeast Asia. Students are usually from all over California, but we’ve also had students from out of states. SI aims to promote awareness, critical thinking, community building, self discovery, and access to higher education for the Southeast Asian youth.

How does this amazing program happen?

It’s a community process: Coordinators + Mentors + Volunteers + Alumni + Mentees + Community = SASC SI. We are currently looking for committee members to help make this summer institute happen once again since its establishment in 2002. We are seeking folks with passion and drive. No prior experience is needed; only motivation and the commitment to be involved and learn more about the issues that affect Southeast Asian Communities.

As a committee member the experience is both touching and truly rewarding. At the end of that one week, there will be sweat, tears, happiness, and most importantly, love. Whether you are looking for leadership skills, family, friends, organizing work, community involvement, or love, this is for you. This year, SASC SI will take place from June 20th – 24th! Come join us to help create this life changing experience.
