APAPA-BAR Interns Visit Sacramento

On July 27, 2012, APAPA Interns from San Francisco journeyed to Sacramento to visit the State Capitol and APAPA’s National Headquarters. Both the San Francisco and Sacramento interns had an opportunity to network over lunch. Later, Donald Terry of Wells Fargo Bank delivered training to the college students on how to budget and save for the future, proper credit usage and how student loans work.  The training was well received by everyone. Wells Fargo has been a faithful partner and sponsor of APAPA.

A message from the Event Chair

Lucy Oback, Event Chair photoWelcome to the APAPA Community Education Foundation's (APAPA-CEF) Internship and Scholarship website (apapacef.org).  The 6th annual and 7th annual events were great successes. Plans are currently underway to make the next event even better.

Mayue Carlson, APAPA’s President/CEO had a vision of a program that would help Asian and Pacific Islander American youths to become our future leaders. Since the inception of this program, we have had 39 college students intern at the Capitol and APAPA-CEF has awarded $44,000 in scholarships to 39 deserving students. Some of our award recipients attended UC Davis, UC Berkley, UC Irvine, University of Southern California, and Sacramento State University to name a few. We want to get the word out to more students in other colleges and universities throughout California. If you are college student, please apply and help get the word out to your school and friends.

The success of our program has come from the tremendous financial support we received from a number of corporate and private sponsors. Our past supporters include the Yin Foundation, Chevron, Comcast, PG & E, AT&T, Mass Mutual Financial Group, Edison International, Kaiser Permanente, ExxonMobil, Faith Cosmetics, Alza, Culture to Culture, Westly Foundation, and Andrew KC Wong to name a generous few. We continue to seek more sponsors who share APAPA’s vision and goals. Please consider financially partnering with us as we want to give more college students an opportunity to intern at the Capitol and provide more scholarships to students. And most of all, your investment in our youth will make a lasting difference in the lives of young people and the API community.

Sincerely,
Lucy Oback, Event Chair
