National College Leadership Conference (NCLC)
The Korean American Coalition’s National College Leadership Conference is a 32 year-old program that strives to educate and inspire future generations of Korean Americans, and develop leaders among them. The Conference invites Korean American students from all across the country, and even internationally, to convene for one week in a camp-style setting.
The KAC National College Leadership Conference has been an invaluable opportunity for young Korean Americans to meet and learn essential leadership skills to assist them in their future professions. The Leadership Conference strives to build awareness of current and past issues facing the Korean American community, with an emphasis on the importance of participation and the appreciation of cultural identity and roots.
Attendees participate in workshops that develop their leadership skills and educate them on issues facing the Korean American community. In an effort to develop future leaders, workshops are designed to train students in various leadership skills including public speaking, group activities, and working in coordination with others. The purpose of this training, along with the education provided to participants, is to prepare students to lead their individual communities.
Notable people who have been involved include Jim Yong Kim – President-elect of the World Bank and former president of Dartmouth College, David. L. Kim – Former Chief of Staff U.S. Mint, as well as the Honorable Lucy Koh – the highest ranking KA female judge in the United States. Our speakers include those who are not only recognized as leaders in their fields, but also involved in the Korean American community.
