White House Initiative on AAPIs Ambassadors Program – Deadline Extended to Aug 27

Apply by August 27 to WHIAAPI’s E3! Ambassadors Program for Young Leaders

The E3! Ambassadors Program is a new challenge that the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (WHIAAPI) is posing to young leaders. E3! stands for “Educate, Engage, and Empower.” The Initiative is seeking bright and creative young leaders to brainstorm innovative solutions to serve the AAPI community in four priority areas: education, mental health, pathways to public service, and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Applicants are encouraged to submit ideas and action plans to advocate for the AAPI community locally and regionally, anything from hosting a career fair to flyering during campus/community events.

Up to 150 applicants will be selected as E3! Ambassadors, who will serve for one academic year between September 1, 2014 through May 31, 2015. E3! Ambassadors will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with Administration leaders, including Initiative staff and members of the President’s Advisory Commission on AAPIs and Regional Interagency Working Group.

The deadline to apply has been extended to Wednesday, August 27, 2014. Check out the Initiative’s website or the Challenge.gov posting for more information.
