Collective Philanthropy Project

The Collective Philanthropy Project (CPP) is an initiative for Vietnamese students and community organizations to collaborate and partner with in working towards one charitable cause. CPP assists North American Vietnamese nonprofit/philanthropic organizations to better achieve their mission through collective and collaborative partnership with UNAVSA.

2020 Project

Voter participation for Asian Americans is especially low for age range 18-34. We’re on a mission to register 100,000 AAPIs by the 2020 Elections. We are doing this by raising awareness, providing education, and giving a space for civic engagement on the local, regional, and national scale. 

Mentorship Program

Our Mentorship Program seeks to engage alumni with high potential members to help develop the next generation of Vietnamese leaders and professionals through lived experiences in their career paths and with their involvements within the community.


At VSAcademy, we are all about the love of knowledge and delivering a beautiful learning experience. VSAcademy offers curated content to educate Vietnamese American & Canadian young leaders. We encourage our constituents to experience the world of knowledge through a variety of mediums – videos, podcasts, playlists, articles, etc.

What are pods? What is "podmapping?" Join us as we introduce this transformative justice tool to build our responses to violence, harm and abuse. This interactive workshop is presented by our very own UNAVSA members Theresa Vu and Pong Muangchan.

We encourage community members to attend with someone they would go to if they experienced harm.

The latter half of the call will be a discussion where we reflect on our pods, and imagine possibilities for tough questions we might have for each other.

Closed Captioning in English through Zoom Live Transcription will be provided.
