About Us

The Organization

AAPI Youth Rising is a student-led organization whose mission it is to take small actions to make positive change in our communities. We are honored to be recognized for our work:

But more than anything, we’re students making a difference one student, one lesson and one day at a time. And there’s more to come. Thanks for stopping by!

Chapter Leaders

What is a Chapter Leader? Chapter Leaders pledge to bring our ONE DAY OF AAPI HISTORY into their classroom/student organization. They also join at least one event during the year (virtual or in person), attend our annual meeting, and sign up for public speaking, community organizing and event planning, legislative action, content creation or graphic art on social media, and/or art activism. Chapter Leaders have first access to speaking opportunities and be able to run for the AYR YOUTH BOARD at the Annual Meeting. We have 80+ Chapters in nearly 20 states and counting. Join now!
