The Political Action and Education Committee (PAEC) will be hosting its annual High School Asian American Leadership Conference on November 15th, 2014. A number of Yale professors will be invited to hold workshops, and Yale students will moderate discussion sessions and serve as mentors for the attendees.

PAEC is currently seeking volunteers to lead workshops and discussions as part of the conference. Workshops should be given on specific topics and should provide students with an opportunity to consider different subjects related to Asian American affairs. They run approximately one hour in length, questions included. Discussions will be used to facilitate further consideration of the presented topics, and generally run 30 minutes each - but they are multiple sessions throughout the day, and discussion leaders will be expected to be there for all sessions.

If you have a special topic or issue you would like to showcase, PAEC would be more than happy to work with you to set up your own workshop. Please fill out the following Google Form if you are interested in signing up to run the discussions or workshops:
