Community Youth Action Committee

MOCA’s Community Youth Action Committee consists of a group of highly motivated New York City high school students united by a common interest in Asian American history and NYC community dynamics. Dedicated to making the unique stories of our community remembered and heard, CYAC members engage in the timeless practice of oral history as a conduit to better understanding Chinatown.

Youth Advisory Board

MOCA's Youth Advisory Board (YAB) is comprised of a group of committed New York City teens who want to engage with Chinese American history, have a voice in their community, and develop teen programs and activities at the Museum.  Weekly workshops provide an out-of-classroom learning experience where students are thinking creatively, building leadership skills, practicing public speaking, and documenting their experiences through multi media technology.
