The Hmong American Peace Academy aims to develop the leader in each student. Our students are to become respectful leaders with a vision and conscience for justice in Milwaukee and the HAPA community. Professional training in leadership skills including personal management of emotions, funds, time, and opportunities are taught to the students through leadership courses and mentor relationships.
Students are afforded the opportunity to practice their leadership at community events hosted by the school, in after school programs, and in their daily courses. Leadership not only builds confidence in students, but also promotes a joyful acceptance of life’s responsibilities.
