Tibetan Americans ‘energized’ by ICT’s Tibetan Youth Leadership Program

June 9, 2015

Thirteen Tibetan Americans completed a week-long Tibetan Youth Leadership Program in Washington, D.C. , on June 7, 2015, organized by the International Campaign for Tibet.

In the last two decades, the Tibetan community in the United States has expanded significantly. Today there is a recognizable presence of Tibetan Americans in different parts of the country. Most of these Tibetans have resettled here from the Indian subcontinent while a small minority have relocated themselves here directly from Tibet.

Now a new generation of young Tibetan Americans has come up in the community here who has had exposure to Tibetan culture through their social interaction and at the same time have had the benefit of the education system of the United States. At least half the number of participants in this year’s program was Tibetan Americans born in the United States. Their first day in DC included a visit to the US State Department where they were recognized by the US State Department’s Spokesperson Marie Harf, who said, “ And then finally, we have some visitors in the back. We welcome today’s press briefing a group of 13 Tibetan American students who are participating in the International Campaign for Tibet’s Tibetan Youth Leadership Program. This program is geared towards motivating and training young Tibetan Americans to become effective leaders within their community by providing meaningful exposure to the U.S. political process and discourse around foreign policy in Washington, D.C. I think the selected participants are from Arizona, Illinois, Indiana – where I went to college – Massachusetts – the home of the Secretary – New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington colleges and universities. So welcome. We’re very happy to have you and I hope you find it interesting.”
