Attention students! 

 

Here's an exciting event you may want to consider applying to:

 

What is VISION's objective?

Through workshops and Cal VSA's (Vietnamese Student Association) Culture Show, one of the largest Vietnamese student-run productions in the nation, this program aims to inspire students to become leaders and make a difference within their communities by developing leadership skills. We started this program to provide students with an educational environment where they can acquire knowledge of the Vietnamese community, heritage, and culture. With VISION, students will be given the opportunity to explore and become involved in discourse regarding Vietnamese and Vietnamese American topics such as history and contemporary issues. 

 

What can students expect from VISION?

Vision is a 4-day, 3-night, all-expense-paid program from Thursday, April 7, 2016 to Sunday, April 10, 2016. Housing, and food will be provided for the 4 days, as well as transportation to and from the students' high schools in Berkeley. The criteria for applications will be based on the applicants' quality of essays, leadership potential, and enthusiasm. Applicants from all backgrounds and ethnicities are encouraged to apply; the application is also open to ALL grade levels in high school. Selected students can expect to network and collaborate with other high school students from all over California through interactive activities, workshops, and discussions. This program will not only educate and inspire our mentees, but also allow them the opportunity to forge new, lasting friendships in a fun and safe environment. 

 

What is this year's theme? 

VISION 2016's theme is Acknowledge Connect & Empower (A.C.E). The Vietnamese community, as any other community, has learned to embrace their Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American identity and what it means to be an Asian American in a diverse environment. Through this theme, we would like our mentees to acknowledge themselves and their past, connect with others through their experiences, and empower themselves, each other, and their community. We will have workshops to learn about how we as individuals can come together to make a difference in our own lives and others. As a culmination of the conversations we will have in our workshops by the end of the program, mentees will have developed skills to make an impact in their community. 

 

Ultimately, the goal for VISION is to empower their mentees to become culturally educated leaders who will initiate change within their communities with the intention of bettering the future. 

 

Below is the link to VISION's online application, which is due on Friday, March 4, 2016:
