APAPA's Core Services
APAPA provides community members with the opportunity to be proactive, participate, educate, and impress upon the API community that we have a voice in government and public affairs. We are accomplishing that through Voters Education, standing up for civil rights, and an active role in government appointments.
APAPA’s established track record demonstrates that we value and support our future leaders and is dedicated to fostering our future through development of our youth. This initiative includes both college scholarship and legislative internship programs.
APAPA is also dedicated to enriching our community and helping members grow and adapt to our ever-changing society. Partnering and collaborating with other community organizations and business sponsors, APAPA has a vision to become the central hub for bringing services to our community members. Major initiatives include Digital Literacy, Health and Senior Services, and Personal Finance
