The Story

Our Conference

Routes (Roots) of Action is a three day east coast conference for the Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Student Association (ITASA) hosted by the University of Maryland, College Park from February 11th-13th, 2016. This conference aims to bring together Taiwanese American students from all over the east coast and all over the country to learn more about leadership and identity. Our theme, Routes (Roots) of Action, reflects upon our “roots”, our heritage as Taiwanese Americans and how that influences the paths or the “routes” that we’ll take as we move forward in life.

What is ITASA? 

The Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Students Association (ITASA) is a national 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that seeks to connect Taiwanese American students across the country, inspires them to spearhead change, and empowers them to be the next generation of community leaders.

ITASA's East Coast Conference is hosted at various universities every year and has attracted hundreds of active students from across the nation. These students are not only interested in Taiwanese culture, but also passionate about topics ranging from health, politics, to protecting the natural environment. Over a period of three days, students will have the opportunity to attend unique workshops led by prominent speakers and participate in social activities to bond with other students. 

Why Donate?

In order to make this conference possible, we need your support! The conference is estimated to cost around $20,000. The $3,000 listed on YouCaring is only a milestone that we hope to exceed. As a college-based organization, our funding is limited to what we apply for and raise on our own. We would greatly appreciate any donations that you, our donors, are willing to give!Your generous contributions will help empower students leaders to strive towards bettering their communities and building the next generation of global leaders.

Your support will go towards inviting influential speakers to share their stories, creating and hosting social events that provide students with the opportunity to connect with one another, and funding for other necessary costs (eg. printing of pamphlets and booking venues). With enough support, we may also be able to lower registration fees, allowing more students attend this meaningful conference. As a non-profit organization, all donations are tax-deductible.
