Presenting a workshop at one or various of our annual Youth Leadership Conferences is a fantastic opportunity to get your message in front of many students of all different backgrounds. Each of our conferences will host approximately 1300 junior, middle, and high school students who are excited and eager to learn something new.

 

The theme for this year’s conference is “It’s Up to Me.” I am responsible to do everything I can to strengthen myself and find success. I am also responsible to help my community move forward. The theme expresses the idea that everyone is responsible to do what they can to find success as students, leaders, and members of the community. The theme also suggests a shared responsibility to help others in the community move forward. We encourage vendors to incorporate the theme into their tables if possible, but it is not a requirement.

We encourage you to incorporate the theme into your presentation. At Latinos In Action, we focus on four core values: Leadership, Service, Excellence in Education, and Developing Personal Assets. You are welcome to weave any or all of these values into your presentation.
