5th Annual Legacy Awards

Oakland Asian Cultural Center
The Future Leaders Institute (FLI-pronounced “FLY”) invites you to celebrate with us at the 5th annual FLI Legacy Awards. Our final program event of the year promises to be another inspiring experience as we come together as a community and honor the work our students have accomplished through their year long journey through the Passion to Action curriculum.
Throughout the year, our FLI students have worked hard to bring their ideas to fruition and have created dozens of projects benefiting the local and global community. Past Legacy Award honorees have raised thousands of dollars for young women in Uganda, built an art gallery for fellow students, developed sustainable programs in their schools to address youth issues, started ongoing music, arts and sports programs for underprivileged students in low-income communities, and contributed in numerous other ways to our community.
We invite you to come and be inspired once again as we hear students share their stories, distribute awards and scholarships for the best projects, and gather one last time and celebrate our Future Leaders.
