Our programs approach

The Leadership Pipeline

Our leadership development programs ensure we have leaders for the APA community by offering opportunities for them to develop the connections, skills, and knowledge to support their rise to the top of the civic and political arena.

We cultivate the leaders of tomorrow.


CAUSE Leadership Qualities


Civic Engagement

We empower and educate our communities.

In order for our APA communities to be aware, mobilize, and vote in future political debates, our Voter Outreach, Training, and Education (VOTE) Initiatives provide culturally-aware outreach resources to encourage civic participation. We understand that our communities need to have the knowledge, access, and network to be fully immersed in our democracy.

Our programs inspire APAs of all ages to voice their vote and define their future.



Our theme this year is “The Future We Define.” As the Asian Pacific American community continues to grow, there is one thing that is clear: we cannot be silenced or ignored. Since our inception, hundreds of emerging leaders have become empowered to vote, participate, and lead. These are the faces of tomorrow and together we define the future we want to see.

"We have to have a nation of educated youth who are given their opportunity and their promise. And that’s the work and the embodiment of the work CAUSE does."
