2012 Catalyst Fund
June 3, 2012
The Catalyst Fund mentorship program provides API young girls and women (ages 11-21), ‘at-risk’ teens, refugee/immigrant women and women in transition, an opportunity to work with Asian women leaders as mentors within a variety of non-profit community agencies. With your support, mentee Helen Lei, received the Heather Fong Mentorship for community service. She gained enriching experiences with the Commission on Status of Women, assisting in key fundraising and leadership events sponsored by the Commission.
Additionally, PAAWBAC helped over 30 teen girls attend the Sister-to-Sister Leadership Conference for female youth, sponsored by Asian American Recovery Services, Inc., whose mission is to decrease the incidence and impact of substance abuse in the API communities of San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties.
