Event Details

 

ASPIRA’s Annual Youth Conference is organized primarily by the youth in our Leadership Development Program. It provides a forum for young people to learn how to become agents of social change who can address their concerns about issues facing their school and communities in a proactive manner. Since its inception in 1993, the conference has grown into a day that includes workshops dealing with cultural identity, a college fair, and a talent showcase featuring our student artists. All workshops held at the conference are chosen by the young people and range from political, health, gender and community issues to workshops on financial aid and career preparedness.

Organizer

ASPIRA of New York, Inc.

HISTORY:
ASPIRA was founded in New York City in 1961 by Dr. Antonia Pantoja to combat the exorbitant dropout rate among Puerto Rican high school youth. The ASPIRA movement and Dr. Pantoja’s ideals took root around the country, leading to the creation in 1968 of ASPIRA of America—today known as The ASPIRA Association—and the establishment of ASPIRA associate offices in Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Puerto Rico. 

MISSION:
To foster the social advancement of the Puerto Rican/Latino community by supporting its youth in the pursuit of educational excellence through leadership development activities and programs that emphasize commitment to the community and pride in the Puerto Rican/Latino culture.
