We the youth leaders of Asian American Student Advocacy Project (ASAP), are proud to introduce our college and career readiness campaign, Campaign Bridge. Campaign Bridge aims to address some of the needs of Asian Pacific American students regarding the issue of guidance programs in NYC public schools.
A college and career readiness campaign that aims to ensure the needs of all Asian Pacific American students are addressed, and that all NYC public high school students can receive the guidance and support they need to be college and career ready. ASAP believes that counselors are the bridges that connect students to a more successful future, and can also provide the essential academic and social support that many students cannot always find at home or within their families. In addition, ASAP has realized that not all schools have the same type of guidance program, and all students do not receive the same quality of support.
To ensure guidance and support is provided to all students, ASAP would like to see more comprehensive guidance programs in schools that better support students to be college and career ready. In order to do so, ASAP propose the following recommendations to the Department of Education (DOE):
The Coalition for Asian American Children and Families (CACF), the nation's only pan-Asian children's advocacy organization, aims to improve the health and well-being of Asian Pacific American children and families in New York City.
CACF organizes Asian Pacific American youth to ensure that there is a collective voice in our advocacy initiatives. We are responsible advocates by ensuring that Asian Pacific American youth themselves have a meaningful role in promoting equity.
The Asian American Student Advocacy Project (ASAP) is a youth leadership program for Asian Pacific American public high school students who want to learn how to make positive changes in education through advocacy
