New IMPACT AAPI Classes

As part of our project, we are offering new AANAPI-targeted classes year-round, through partnerships with LinC (Learning in Communities) and APALI.

Each LinC class combines 2 subjects to provide a better and easier understanding of both. The 2 new classes, LART 211 and (EWRT 1A + ICS 24) focus on bringing reading and writing skills to the college level, with the LART 211 class serving as a prerequisite for the (EWRT 1A + ICS 24).

The APALI Summer Leadership Academy is a standalone program that explores community, identity, leadership, and civic involvement over the course of 15 full days in July.
