The UNAVSA Alumni Journey
The Union of North American Vietnamese Student Associations is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan, community-based organization. UNAVSA is dedicated to cultivating the next generation of leaders who will serve as stewards of the Vietnamese community. Officially formed in 2004… we’ve come a long way.
UNAVSA has previously experimented with different Alumni initiatives. With the creation and clarification of UNAVSA cabinets allowed for committees to be defined that saw a greater vision outside of just the UNAVSA conference which was a large focus for the organization. Staff and volunteer records have been kept but haven’t been utilized to it’s full potential to develop a program that would endure for our alumni.
How we got to Today
At UNAVSA-14 in New Orleans Timmy Vo made a pitch to alumni in attendance outlining his vision for what UNAVSA’s Alumni Relations could be. Since then he gathered the brightest team together to work with him towards that vision. In Fall 2017 we began to meet, ideate, and work towards bringing these that vision to fruition.
To reunite and reignite the passions of the UNAVSA alumni in order to provide support and resources in further developing young leaders across the continent.
