Culture Pitch Game

Since 2018, we are partnering with Vingo, a non-profit focusing on Vietnamese culture and language preservation, to bring the Silicon Valley culture to MAYS by providing a solution-driven space for you to help solve a problem within your community. This year's theme is about our ENVIRONMENT.

The Cultural Pitch Game is a three-part program, that will train, supervise and assist you to be social leaders!  In the first part, you'll learn how to plan and organize a social project. In the second part, you'll showcase your project. Lastly, we mentor all members in the winning team until you go to college! 

This year's topic is our ENVIRONMENT. How can we help to advocate for our environment? How can we use our cultural knowledge and skill set to better our environment?
