The mission of the Alliance of Rhode Island Southeast Asians for Education is to prepare, promote and empower Rhode Island’s Southeast Asian students for educational and career success.
We envision a Southeast Asian community that is healthy, thriving, and able to reach its full potential by being engaged and socially responsible members of their communities.
OUR CORE VALUES
We value ACCESS: We believe all people should have equal opportunities in education, regardless of their ethnicity, social class, gender, sexual orientation, physical and mental disabilities, and background.
We value EQUITY: We believe that educational practices, policies, and programs should help to eliminate the inequities that occur when biased or unfair policies, programs, or practices contribute to a lack of equality in educational performance and results.
We value SUCCESS: We believe that every student can realize and reach their full potential and gain skills and core competencies that are important in their holistic development as revolutionary thinkers and doers.
