学生们,进入各联邦政府机构参与暑期实习,为希望体验及了解政府内部运作的年轻亚太裔学生提供强化的训练,有效提升他们的领袖才能。
2018 年的暑期公共事务实习生进入了10 个美国联邦政府部门以及16 个办公室(其中包括国务院、国防部和商务部等)进行了8 周的实习,特别是白宫已连续从国际领袖基金会中挑选实习生。至今为止,本会曾为过千名的美国亚太裔,特别是华裔大学生提供奖学金和领袖

的对比,却非常的低;能为亚裔代言,争取权益的领袖人才也太少。正因为如此,亚裔的力量并未受到主流社会足够重视,属於最沉默的族群。故而需要培训更多优秀的青年,日後能为亚裔族群在社会上随时争取自身的权益,并适时加入美国政经界,学习美国联邦政府在国
际暨国内事务实际运作的程序与方式,充分了解政府公共政策对亚裔社区发展的重要,积极结合与善用各级政府的各项资源,来扩大对国际社会的影响力”。

本基金会理事会董事长徐绍钦博士表示?“国际领袖基金会以导亚裔未来的领袖如何进入美国主流社会,?促进美国亚裔参与公共服务宗旨,了解如何我们社区争取最大权益?学生们在实习中,对美国国会、白宫的运作及政策发展会有更深入的了解;并组团拜访国会及政府各部会,以提升美国亚裔权益;推展国际交流计划,企业与领袖高峰论坛,提供国际年领袖人才培训,让来自亚太地区国家与美国的优秀企业及社区领袖、年学员,彼此互相讨国际事务,共创未来,形成全球年领袖社群。本会创会会长董继玲说?"?美国亚裔族群在美国社会中,是十数年间最新、最迅速崛起的新移民族裔,大部分亚裔移民家庭都注重育,是目前美国少数族裔中,经济实力最优越的。我们华裔就是属於美国亚裔族群的成员,各方面皆飞快发展,成就卓越,这些杰出的表现,都可以作美国少数族裔的典范。但在参政及从政的比例,与其经济实力的对比,却非常的低;能亚裔代言,争取权益的领袖人才也太少。正因如此,亚裔的力量并未受到主流社会足重视,属於最沉默的族群。故而需要培训更多优秀的年,日後能亚裔族群在社会上随时争取自身的权益,并适时加入美国政经界,学习美国联邦政府在国际国内事务实际运作的程序与方式,充分了解政府公共政策对亚裔社区发展的重要,积极结合与善用各级政府的各项资源,来扩大对国际社会的影响力"

2017 ILF CIVIC FELLOWS ASSEMBLE IN DC TO CULTIVATE PUBLIC SERVICE EXPERIENCE


The International Leadership Foundation (ILF) was pleased to welcome its 2017 class of Civic Fellows at the Fellowship Program Orientation this past Saturday, June 3, 2017 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center from 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. After orientation, the Fellows participated in the program’s inaugural Welcome Dinner and career networking, where they met and interacted with distinguished dignitaries from the International Trade Administration in U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Department of Transportation, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and U.S. Department of Agriculture.

“In my opinion, the most exciting aspect of the ILF Civic Fellowship program is absolutely the opportunity to meet and talk to so many young, driven Asian Americans in one setting,” said 2017 ILF Civic Fellow and New York University student Hank Wu. “I particularly enjoyed the initial welcome dinner because I was able to meaningfully discuss business, politics, and even life itself with a group of people that cares about these topics as much as I do. In many ways, the high energy environment that ILF facilitates for its civic fellows is its greatest asset.”

This year’s cohort is comprised of 32 astute and ethnically diverse students from over 20 distinguished colleges and universities across the nation. The Fellows will intern across 25 offices within nine federal agencies and four offices at the U.S. Congress. Each Fellow will serve an 8-week tour of duty and participate in educational seminars to develop a deeper understanding of public service and policy.



















Class of 2017 ILF Civic Fellows

“I am grateful and excited for the opportunities that the ILF program presents. ILF’s mission to empower the AAPI community is inspiring and resonates with me as I passionately believe that the voices of the AAPI community need to be heard,” said 2017 ILF Civic Fellow and University of Southern California student Kathryn Jian.” “During orientation and the welcome dinner, we were able to learn more specifically what this program encompasses. I think it is important as young people to understand how our government is working and how we can change things for the future. Being able to create our own policy agendas seems like an effective, hands-on experience and I appreciate the opportunity to be able to share our own ideas. I am looking forward to learning and growing through this internship!”

Started in 2000 with just six Fellows, the ILF Civic Fellowship program has since grown and provided internship placements and scholarships to over 400 alumni, with approximately 30 students in every summer class. This year, ILF is continuing its implementation of the ILF Fellow alumni e-mentors, who will provide guidance to the Fellows over the course of the program.

Executive Director Soo Kyung Koo said, “I’m extremely excited to meet with students who have leadership potential and passion for public service and community development. The ILF Civic Fellowship program and its civic leadership training will make them emerging young leaders and future policy makers at the end of this summer. The ILF team will also connect them to leaders and key players in D.C. so they can forge their legacy and expand their horizons. Today, as part of the orientation, they are mentored by government officials from four different agencies about career paths in public service and each federal office’s mission.”

Other 2017 ILF Fellows have had the following to say about their experience so far:
“I decided to be a part of ILF this summer because I saw the need for more AAPI representation in the government and the public sector. I hope to learn from current AAPI leaders in government and to develop more skills to strengthen my leadership and ability to represent AAPIs in our communities. I am looking forward to more opportunities to learn, reflect, and grow!?Orientation and the Welcome Dinner were great opportunities to become more oriented about the current AAPI representation in the public sector here in D.C. and to learn about the past, present, and future of ILF. I am very grateful for all the work and passion that ILF puts into fostering future AAPIs leaders.” –Jin Mi Sohn, Middlebury College
”?I value this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work in the Department of Treasury provided by ILF because not many people, especially as a college rising sophomore, can work in a program that collects over 12 billions dollars annually. I also value the connections I will be making with the fellows. I believe the orientation and the welcome dinner were very helpful for me to get to know all the fellows and to get prepared for all the opportunities in front of me. Thank you!” –Yijun “Tom” Feng, New York University
“I am looking forward to the opportunities given to me as an ILF Fellow to meet more leaders and possible mentors within the D.C. public service community. I enjoyed meeting the ILF staff and the other 2017 Fellows during orientation and getting to know them better over dinner. I feel that this experience overall will help me get a better idea of what I want to do in the future, while being part of a great community.” –Neha Manu, University of Virginia
“The ILF program orientation was a helpful introduction to an engaging and fruitful summer in D.C. Meeting the ILF staff and other Fellows was an exciting opportunity to reflect on my own personal and professional goals for this summer, and I am excited to immerse myself in the processes of decision-making that unfold in the nation’s capital.” –Ryan Lee, Brown University
“Through ILF, I hope to gain the critical analytical and leadership tools needed to address gaping needs in the Asian American community not just at home, but throughout the United States. Through the orientation day and the welcome dinner, ILF has pushed me to a great start in that regard: I have met with leading AAPI civil servants who have dedicated their lives to serving the needs of others, and I have obtained tools necessary for me to pursue my D.C. goals.” –Kion You, Brown University
“I’ve enjoyed the in-depth discussions with experienced individuals in Washington, D.C that we’ve met either at the orientation, Welcome Dinner, or other ILF events. Their insights were extremely helpful in not only allowing us to explore different opportunities in public service, but also in providing a means which to go forward with concrete goals we might have for the public good. I look forward to the policy project and other ILF events in the coming summer.” –Angela He,?Washington University in St. Louis
“When I met my fellow ILF cohort members for the first time at our orientation and welcome dinner, I was able to be part of a comfortable space where AAPIs talked about politics, dream careers, and individual passions. It was both exciting and empowering, and it still continues to be. Throughout this fellowship, I hope to improve my leadership skills, learn more about policies through my own research and our federal policy project, and learn how I can engage more AAPIs to enter fields that lack their representation. ” –Na-Yeon Park, Rutgers University
“Although I came in a week late and was not able to attend Orientation or the Welcome Dinner, I’m hoping to network with other fellows and appreciate the opportunity I have been provided to connect with great professionals, key players, and awesome leaders in D.C. Getting the chance to meet with mentors and supervisors within my department allowed me to realize that public service incorporates a lot of people with different backgrounds and interests and range of career paths. This definitely has catapulted and contributed to my plan of possible career goals.” –Florrie Li, University of Washington
“When I was accepted into ILF, I thought to myself about the type of experiences I would immerse myself in and what I would think back on in 10, 20, or 40 years. Since arriving in DC, I feel like I will walk away with new connections, new values, and new opportunities that were hidden to me before. On this journey, ILF will help me along that way by connecting me with environments that will challenge me to grow as well as mature the values I hold close to myself.” –Benjamin Soong,?University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign
“ILF launched us right into orientation with a diverse set of peers and capped the evening off with an informative welcome dinner among public service professionals. I fully intend to work in D.C. upon graduation, and I look forward to ILF’s upcoming professional development events throughout this summer.” –So Jung Kim, University of Michigan
“From the very start, our mentors have been looking out for us. Not only have they helped us find internships within federal agencies, but they have also shared their invaluable knowledge and perspective with us. Furthermore, I’ve found great opportunities to connect with DC insiders, which has been an incredibly educational experience.?I’m looking forward to better understanding our federal government and how we can effectively act within its framework. I have no doubt that I will emerge from ILF’s civic fellowship program a stronger and more experienced leader.” –Alexander Li,?University of California, Berkeley
“As a current ILF Fellow, I feel confident moving forward in my career goals of eventually serving in government. ILF directly connected me with important government officials and key individuals through events, such as our Welcome Dinner. Orientation was thorough, yet succinct, and helped me prepare for an internship in DC. The Welcome Dinner was a wonderful chance to not only meet government officials, but also get to know my fellow cohort as well.” –Megha Torpunuri, University of California, Berkeley

Along with its yearly commitments to managing and enhancing the Fellowship Program, ILF has maintained its partnership with other leading D.C. Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) organizations, sponsoring another 120 college students in similar leadership training programs. The strength of the Civic Fellowship Program continues to affirm ILF’s mission in facilitating AANHPI leadership development and its constitutive presence among the sweeping changes occurring across the U.S. and the world.

Founded in 2000, the International Leadership Foundation (ILF) has promoted the civic awareness, public service, and economic prosperity of the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community as a non-profit organization. ILF cultivates young leaders in the United States, Asia, and Pacific Rim countries in various professional fields especially in public affairs through support from ILF’s own national network of business and community leaders across 15 cities in the U.S. and abroad.

U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency hosts 2017 National AAPI Business Summit

WASHINGTON (May 18, 2017) — The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) and the National Asian/Pacific Islander American Chamber of Commerce and Entrepreneurship (National ACE) hosted the National Asian-American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Business Summit on May 16 at the Department of Commerce.
The event recognized Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, an annual observance that honors the contributions of AAPIs to our nation's history and culture.
The business summit provided a forum to celebrate AAPI business success and address the challenges faced by AAPI business community.
AAPI business owners are one of the fastest-growing populations in the United States and nearly 2 million businesses are owned by Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders nationwide, employing 3.6 million workers, and generating nearly $700 billion in annual revenue, according to the 2012 U.S. Census Bureau’s Survey of Business Owners.
“MBDA is honored to host today’s summit and to celebrate AAPI Heritage Month,” said MBDA Acting National Director Edith J. McCloud. “MBDA understands the value of building partnerships and creating opportunities to share our knowledge and experience, and we know that entrepreneurship is a sure pathway to wealth creation and a thriving national economy. Your success means more jobs, sustainable communities, and greater prosperity for all American families.”
The honorable Judy Chu, U.S. House of Representatives, provided keynote remarks during the afternoon portion of the program. “Today’s summit is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate all that our diverse businesses do for our community and our country,” said Chu. The California congresswoman shared her grandfather’s story of opening a Chinese restaurant in Watts and the opportunities that entrepreneurship have provided to her family and so many others. “Minority businesses are the driver of our economy and that’s why I made helping businesses a priority during my time in Congress.”
Representing Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, were Senior White House Advisor Eric Branstad and White House Liaison Todd Abrajano who also provided remarks to the audience.
During the event, attendees participated in discussions on AAPI business success, customer and supplier relationships, the state of AAPI Business and Entrepreneurship and challenges and successes for the next generation of AAPI entrepreneurs. Some of the key takeaways from the discussions included the importance of building communities and networking while growing your business, embracing innovation, and having an entrepreneurial mindset. Speakers also encouraged business owners to tell their stories and share their experiences as part of their journey.
This was the second year in a row that MBDA and National ACE worked together to plan and host the National AAPI Business Summit.
“The National ACE is committed to collaborating with MBDA and advancing economic growth and development of AAPI businesses and interests. The National AAPI Business Summit helps us to create more opportunities and develop mentorship for business owners, especially for the next generation of AAPI entrepreneurs,” said National ACE President and CEO, Chiling Tong.
Attendees also had the opportunity to participate in power networking sessions with government officials and AAPI business owners, leaders and professionals. This year’s AAPI Business summit drew more than 200 people from across the U.S.

  • 总统接见「国际领袖基金会」顾问团暨美方代表团
  • 公布日期
中华民国105年04月18日
总统接见「国际领袖基金会」顾问团暨美方代表团(2-1)总统接见「国际领袖基金会」顾问团暨美方代表团(2-2)
  马英九总统今(18)日上午接见「国际领袖基金会」顾问团暨美方代表团一行,感谢该会致力推动美国华裔青年参与公共事之贡献与努力,并说明我国与美国及中国大陆过去8年来在双方关系与交流上的变化及发展。
  总统致词表示,「国际领袖基金会」是2000年在美国华盛顿哥伦比亚特区创立的非营利组织,目前在全美及亚太地区共设有15个分会,成员共有约2,000人,多年来致力推动美国华裔青年领袖参与公共事务,透过举办「暑期公共事务实习计画」(Civic Fellowship Program)及资助「美国华府领导人才研讨会」(Washington Leadership Program),让华裔学生有机会到美国联邦政府各公部门实习,或办理「国际杰出青年培训计画」(Young Ambassador Program),选拔青年亲善大使,增加华裔青年与美国政界更多互动,让年轻一代有更多接触公共事务的机会,贡献良多,殊值肯定。
  谈及我国透过各项活动以鼓励青年学子参与公共事务的成果,总统表示,我相关部会及民间单位均会在寒暑假期间安排许多种类多元之组织与营队,一方面让年轻人充沛的精力与创意得以发挥,同时增加渠等接触公共事务及参与国际活动的机会;日前他在府内接见印尼海事统筹部部长利查尔(Rizal Ramli)时得知,渠在学生时代亦曾参加美国国务院举办的「国际访客计画」(International Visitor Leadership Program),与会的我外交部次长令狐荣达当时亦是参与此计画成员之一,当年的两位年轻人今日均在各自国家中身居要津,「当年的友谊都变成我们现在的邦谊」。
  总统指出,我国相当重视青年学子与国际社会之互动,从2009年以来,外交部启动「国际青年大使交流计画」,迄今已组了170团,合计有1千5百多名多才多艺的国际青年大使至邦交国或友好国家访问交流。由於成效良好,去(2015)年我们更从8团增加为10团,青年大使人数从去年的128位提升到160位,原本为期2周的访问与演出也延长为3周,分别至35个国家、41个城市进行深度访问,提升青年大使出访交流的深度与广度;此外,政府也推行「万马奔腾计画」,提供我国青年到美国大学研修国际事务课程的机会,从2009年到2013年,共选送388位青年,总补助金额约新台币6,900万元,成果丰硕。
  谈及台美关系,总统表示。自他2008年上任之後,以「低调、零意外」的原则推动各项实质关系发展,恢复了双方高层的互信,两国合作交流也更加密切,台美双方签署的协定或协议,从90个增加到154个,共增加了64个。台湾不仅成为美国第9大贸易夥伴,更於2012年参与美国免签证计画(VWP),在获得美国免签证待遇的38个国家中,是唯一与美国无正式邦交的国家,也提升我国人前往美国旅游或访问的意愿。而美国对我国的军售也超过201亿美元,较他前两任总统在任时期大幅增加,显见双方互动与关系更为深厚
  总统进一步提及,近年来许多美国政要均曾先後针对台美与两岸关系发表正面论述,例如美国总统欧巴马於上(3)月31日与大陆领导人习近平会面时,肯定过去8年来两岸关系有历史性的进展;去年4月,国务卿凯瑞并表示,台湾是美国亚太政策包括「向亚洲再平衡」(Rebalance to Asia)的「关键要素」(key component);美国国务院亚太副助卿董云裳(Susan Thornton)去年5月演讲时,肯定目前的台美关系处於最佳状态,并称我国是美国在东亚地区「至关重要的夥伴」(vital partner),并且强调「稳定处理两岸关系是近年来台美关系能够密切合作的重要成分」(important ingredient)。
  总统强调,两岸关系持续改善,连带提升了台美关系发展。对美国、台湾与中国大陆三方而言,在他上任後这段期间,三方均是首次能同时与另外两方友好互动,而不必担心影响第三方。总统举例说明,去(2015)年11月7日在新加坡与中国大陆领导人习近平会面前,双方在确定行程後,同时表示要通知美方,「而且我们几乎在同一时间通知」,显示三方「从原先的恶性循环,在经过我们8年的努力,已变成良性循环」。
  访宾一行40余人,由「国际领袖基金会」名誉团长冯伟杰及创办人兼执行长董继玲率领、外交部次长令狐荣达陪同,前来总统府晋见总统。总统府秘书长曾永权及国家安全会议副秘书长高振群也在座。

中式家庭教育在刘云平成长过程中有非常重要的影响
美国加利福尼亚州首位当选联邦众议员的华裔第一代移民刘云平,一月六日在华盛顿宣誓就职。刘云平邀请全家人陪同出席就职仪式,共同见证了这一荣耀的时刻、分享成功的喜悦。
刘云平三岁随父母从台湾移民来美,在一个普通移民家庭中经历了所有新移民生存之路。从参选洛杉矶南部城市托伦斯市市议员开始、到加州众议员、加州参议员、再到现在的美国联邦众议员,坚定的信念和付出的努力令全美华裔社区感到骄傲,华人家长对于刘云平成长过程中的家庭教育的方式,更是想一探究竟。
在刘云平当选之夜,刘云平父亲刘天擎与母亲丘继聪表示,两人的教育子女的方式,各有不同,父亲是比较传统的中式教育理念,要求比较严格;妈妈则是慈母式的教育,强调以爱的教育方式为主,但都离不开深深的中华文化烙印。
他们至今仍记得,正在上初中的刘云平有一次在帮助父母除草后,和父母交谈,隔壁的同学帮助家里做事都可以有零花钱收入的,我们家里是否也可以这样?妈妈就告诉他,一种方式就是当地家庭较为流行的帮家里做事赚取零花钱,另一种就是我们华人家庭的方式,每个人都有为家庭工作的义务,家庭也为每位成员的需求提供支持和保障。你可以自己选择一种方式。刘云平在考虑后告诉妈妈,他还是选择华人家庭的方式。以后也再也没有提出过这类的要求。
刘天擎则清楚地记得,刘云平从来不和他顶嘴,也很照顾小他5岁的弟弟。弟弟小时候参加棒球队比赛,父亲时间有限,但刘云平都会提议等弟弟打完球再走。自己的玩具也都非常愿意和弟弟分享。
高中时因为成绩和表现优异,刘云平获得了美国空军的大学奖学金,在体检时发现视力不好,空军表示不符合录取要求,但承诺的奖学金继续有效。刘云平则自己主动和空军联络,表达自己热爱美国和热爱空军的真切之心,最后竟然感动了空军,又获得了服役空军的机会。
高中毕业时,历史课老师表示,刘云平是他有史以来教过的最优秀的学生;而刘云平在高中毕业谈及未来志向时,其中一个就是将来要当美国联邦参议员。
刘云平的父母表示,他们自身工作较忙,但是一直努力让子女进入当地最好的学校接受教育,自己的言传身教当然也会影响到自己的子女。刘云平非常孝顺,大学毕业后每月都给奶奶寄零花钱,直到奶奶去世。之后又一直给外婆寄零花钱。在美国成长的孩子,一般很少会这样做的,非常难得。
刘云平的妈妈表示,孩子的未来将会有更多的压力和挑战,父母爱的教育一样有用,给他们未来的人生留下美好的回忆。
与刘云平居住在同一城市的全美中华青年联合会会长任向东表示,中式家庭教育在刘云平的成长过程中发挥了重要的影响力,养成了刘云平努力进取、诚实、谦和、沉稳和忠诚的从政风格。
刘云平参加工作以后也曾积极参加华人社团,在参与华裔律师协会活动结识了同为律师的太太詹碧琪。
从刘云平的成长道路来看,华裔家庭非常有必要在子女成长过程中,强化中华文化的传授,培养华裔青少年对中华文化的充分自信。(AACYF洛杉矶讯)
