APIASF visited Boston to continue its longstanding support for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) students in the community. Asian Americans comprise 10 percent of Boston’s population and have grown by 27 percent between 2000 and 2010. Consistently, the AAPI community and its educational needs continue to grow. By convening business, government and community leaders, APIASF looks forward to raising awareness and garnering support to change the experiences of Boston-area students. By attending the APIASF Jump Start College Tour, participants will learn how to identify the resources that can help support their pursuit of higher education and long-term career goals.
