In case you see 40 students walking and dining around the International District from now until July 13, know that they’re part of Northwest Asian Weekly Foundation’s Summer Youth Leadership Program.
The program began in 1995 as a way for Northwest Asian Weekly to give back to the community. Thanks to the space provided by the Seattle Chinatown/International District Preservation Development Authority, we’ve been able to continue the program for the past 18 years.
SYLP alumni will have a reunion on July 22. The location for the reunion will be announced soon. Contact Yolanda Eng at email@example.com for more info. (end)
