Projects created and led by youth teams.

Guided by findings from the community-based, arts-informed research project with Asian youth, the following youth-led projects engage young people to act as facilitators and content creators leading conversations on anti-Asian racism (AAR).

Oriented towards skill building, peer connection, and knowledge translation, the Youth Ambassador Program and the Digital Storytelling Initiative create space for Asian youth to connect, build resilience, and raise public awareness about AAR. These outreach initiatives are supported in part by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.

The Digital Storytelling Initiative provides a space for Asian youth to connect and build resilience, express creativity, and document their experiences and stories through digital storytelling.
