The Young Asian Leadership Alliance Gala, YALA Gala, is an affinity space and conference for AAPI students (grades 7-12), teachers, and administrators in the New York City area. We recognize that the AAPI experience is diverse, and we welcome a wide range of backgrounds including but not limited to: participants who self-identify as East Asian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, multi-racial, multi-ethnic, Pacific Islander, and people who are adopted. This space is inclusive of all genders and sexual orientations. Our mission is to foster community and leadership among AAPIs by creating a critical mass of voices and experiences.
The conference will include an awesome keynote, conferences, affinity groups, and a YALA GALA!
The theme for this year’s conference is Reclaim, Represent, Reconnect!
