HCAP Leaders Program

Want to become a leader? Looking for leadership opportunities but don’t know where to start? Apply for the HCAP Leaders Program!

The HCAP Leaders Program seeks to grow and develop outstanding leaders to build and guide the Hunter College Asian American community. HCAP Leaders will receive hands-on leadership coaching, skills training, and mentorship to become ambassadors of HCAP and peer leaders for other students. HCAP Leaders will be responsible not only for representing HCAP but will also act as peer leaders to help students navigate their Hunter experience.

Training topics include: public speaking, networking, facilitation, event planning, Asian American identity and issues, and more.


Applications for the HCAP Leaders Program will open in late December/early January.

After the new Leaders are accepted, training will begin in the Spring Semester on a biweekly basis and conclude with a retreat in the summer.  After training, HCAP Leaders will begin directly leading and assisting with HCAP programming and events.
