Youth and Ambassadors

Looking to build AAPI power on your campus and in your community? Ready to mobilize your peers for the upcoming Midterm elections?

APIAVote is seeking passionate AAPI collegiate students and student organizations to participate in our 2022 Youth Ambassador Program!

The Ambassador Program will engage a cohort of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) student leaders to develop and implement a voter engagement program for their respective campuses and AAPI communities. The focus of the program is to build power for AAPI youth on college campuses and activate the AAPI community in civic and political participation.

Ambassadors will be key in coordinating volunteer and team recruitment, voter registration drives, get-out-the-vote programs on their campus, educating their campus community on current AAPI topics, and building sustainable programming on campus.

APIAVote will support Ambassadors through regular webinars and training, online hangouts, one-on-one advising, development of materials, technical assistance, and operational funding. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns – feel free to contact Julie Wu at
