The New York City Asian American Student Conference (NYCAASC) is is a day-long conference for students who are passionate about issues around Asian Americans. Since our inception in 2006, we've wanted to create a safe space to talk about how to challenge oppression and injustice.

As a member of the organizing team, you’ll get to educate and empower fellow students around topics concerning Asian Americans & social justice, activism, identity, diaspora, art, and more. In the process of developing this valuable community space, we work together to help each other grow as organizers, activists, allies, human beings, and friends.

Applicants who have been selected will be contacted for a follow-up interview at a later date.
