Description

Portland State University’s MEChA Chapter will be the host to the 14th annual Edúcate Conference.
Edúcate is an all-day conference that serves to empower, educate, and inspire Chicanx youth to pursue higher education. Annually, about 350 middle and high school students attend this conference from schools in the Portland metro area and surrounding cities.

Students will receive insight about at the college process and experience through workshops, resources and our environment. Our focus is to motivate youth to continue their education and attend college.

Edúcate offers keynote speakers, workshops, a resource fair, a closing dance, and much more. MEChA strives to see attending youth leaving the conference with gained awareness and knowledge on culture, social justice issues, community issues, higher education, and a greater sense of pride and identity. There is no cost to attend the conference. Breakfast and lunch will be provided!
