Southeast Asian Youth Conference 2018

Southeast Asian Youth Conference 2018 "Transformative Healing: Our Continuous Narratives" DATE: January 26-28th Location: University of California, Davis Hosted by: Southeast Asians Furthering Education (SAFE) Southeast Asians Furthering Education and the Student Recruitment and Retention Center are proud to present our annual Southeast Asian Youth Conference (SEAYC) to be held from January 26th to the 28th, 2018 at the University of California, Davis. SEAYC is a 3-day, 2-night conference for Southeast Asian identified middle school and high school youth as well as allies to the Southeast Asian community. SEAYC aims to empower youth to strive for higher education by providing workshops, activities, guest speakers, and performances on SEA history, culture, identity, and leadership.

Southeast Asians Furthering Education (SAFE) is one of the seven community programs under the Student Recruitment & Retention Center (SRRC) at UC Davis. We are a university department run entirely by students for students. Our aim is to provide services and resources to anyone who identifies as Southeast Asian, especially those who come from families and backgrounds that were affected by the Vietnam War. By "Southeast Asian", we are referring to those whose hxstory is tied back to the Vietnam War and refugee experience. Southeast Asians consist of but not limited to the Vietnamese, Hmong, Lao, Iu-Mien, Cambodian, and several other ethnic minorities from the war-inflicted countries of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia. Though our target is to serve the Southeast Asian community, we welcome anyone and everyone of all communities.

The theme “Transformative Healing: Our Continuous Narratives” is to create a space we hope for students to share their narratives, to find a way to heal from their traumas, and to empower them to pursue higher education. Often times the trauma of the refugee experience is passed down from one generation to the next and goes unacknowledged (what is referred to as second-hand trauma) as well as the trauma that students are experiencing in their own life. Transformative healing is an ongoing process and sharing our narratives can be a form of healing. However, we also want them to acknowledge that everyone has different ways of healing and goes at different paces. Our stories are not defined by our past and our past does not make you who you are but instead guides you.

We want to introduce higher education as a pathway for healing. It is an ever changing space where the student can have agency over their development and growth. By initiating the healing process for themselves, they are also initiating it for their own communities. *APPLICATIONS* Participant: Deadline: Wednesday, January 10th @ 11:59 PM *We want to stress that we will be selecting participants based on the QUALITY of their application and priority will be given to students who have not attended SEAYC in the past.
