Foster Character Strengths and Leadership in Asian Students

About Us

Asian Young Leaders Institute (AYLI) is      a US-based non-profit organization that   aims to leverage Positive Psychology Science to create and disseminate evidence-based interventions in schools and families to foster character strengths and leadership in students.

About Us
Our Approach

Our approach not only focuses on students, but also involves and inspires their teachers and parents to learn their own teaching and parenting style through the lenses of character strengths. The more they all work together to spot and develop character strengths in students, the easier it is to foster leadership in students.

 Our Approach

Our Projects

In 2015, we launched a pilot project for Asian elementary school students and their parents through partnerships with school districts in Southern California.

In 2016, we expand our footprint to partner with US schools serving large Asian student populations and Chinese families. 

Our Projects

We apply research, data and empirical evidence to innovate and develop effective interventions that transform the way Asian students of all ages discover and apply their character strengths to form their very own leadership style.

View Our Projects

We partner with researchers, institutions, practitioners to spread the knowledge, findings and stories of character strengths development, the application of positive psychology in character development and leadership to the Asian school and family community.
