The Asian-American community is in dire need of a support network for its young members in search of professional success. We fill that gap.
Who We Are
Founded by two Asian-American families concerned with the future of our community, The Youth Fund invests in the next generation of Asian-Americans. Download our brochure.
What We Do
We build an ecosystem to connect Asian-American youth with positive role models who provide guidance and inspiration they need to become independent, contributing members of their local communities and the greater American society.
Why We Do It
We believe that we can find a path forward for Asian-American youth who often experience stress and confusion when planning their future without proper guidance. Asian-American college students are 1.6 times more likely than other Americans to attempt suicide, but they are three times less likely than their peers to seek mental health services. We also believe that Asian-Americans who have established themselves in their chosen fields need a way to give back to the community.
