ALLY is a student run, non-profit that seeks to foster positive change in our community & provide leadership opportunities for young Chinese Americans.

Founded in 2016, ALLY now has four chapters in Irvine, San Gabriel Valley, Diamond Bar and Palos Verde.

(ALLY was formerly known as Future Chinese Leaders of America (FCLA). )

Since our founding we’ve put together hundreds of events.

We hope the club can lead to positive changes in our community: spreading information about issues facing us and helping young Chinese Americans become better leaders.

What We Do

Speaker Events, Workshops, Volunteering


ALLY also hosts workshops to help develop our members’ leadership skills. Past workshops focused on skills like public speaking, speech and debate, resume building, and how to rock an interview!

Speaker Events

ALLY invites political and business leaders to speak to us about their journeys and the issues they most want to bring change towards. Then, we form discussion groups to share out opinions on these issues. Past speakers have included CA State Treasurer John Chiang, US Congresswoman Katie Porter, and Irvine Mayor Don Wagner.


ALLY also hosts regular volunteer events. For example, over the past three years, the club has registered hundreds of voters.
