College Leadership Training
Over the last 15 years, OCA has provided more than 1,000
college students with the opportunity to share awareness raising experiences,
mobilize around APA issues and campaigns, work with the community, and discover
the ever changing role of APA students in multi-ethnic settings. OCA’s College
Day is a full day of workshops, centering on issues affecting APA college
students. Highlights include workshops and discussion groups on media,
education, activism and politics, and career choices. This daylong event includes
breakfast and lunch.

Mastering Your Own Narrative
As college students make the gigantic leap from college to their careers, it is without a doubt a most transformative time in their lives. Through interactive narratives from experienced APA professionals who will facilitate activities and discussions, participants will get the opportunity to reflect on their own leadership skills and abilities while learning about the role of mentorship as it relates to preparing, entering and navigating the workforce.
