Motivation Conference (MC)

Motivation Conference (MC) is a 2 1/2-day non-yield outreach program that targets underprivileged Asian American / Pacific Islander (AAPI) high school students from under resourced and under represented communities. A non-yield outreach program is a program that outreaches to students who have not been accepted in the university. MC targets AAPI high school students who have not thought about higher education as an option, or do not feel that higher education is a space for them. For 2 1/2 days MC allows these students to experience ways to express themselves, learn about more their identity, and see higher education as a realistic and obtainable goal. The Asian Pacific Islander Student Alliance (APISA) as well as many volunteers organize and plan the conference.
