From the Chinatown Youth Initiative family to yours, we wish you an auspicious and prosperous lunar new year. As more than a million Asian Americans across New York City celebrate, we hope that you keep CYI in your mind during this joyful period and send us a hong bao to help us reach our fundraising goal!
Starting in the now until March 8, 2020, CYI hopes to raise at least $1,088. Our fundraising goal helps support CYI’s Summer Leadership Institute, empowering high school and college youth with weekly workshops to discuss contemporary issues affecting Asian Americans and other underrepresented communities.
The mission of Chinatown Youth Initiatives (CYI) is to empower New York City youth with the knowledge and skills necessary to address the needs of Chinatown, Asian Americans, and other underrepresented communities. By providing a safe and supportive environment, CYI works to build a legacy of leaders who strengthen awareness of self-identity and community issues through project initiatives.
