Description

2018 Latino Youth Leadership Conference Flyer


Join us for the Sixth Annual Latino Leadership Conference specifically designed for male students ranging from ages 14 to 19.

This year's theme is Be Who You Are Destined to Be, Not Who They Want You to Be, and our Keynote Speaker is Luis Diaz, General Counsel and Chief Cybersecurity Officer at Vision-e and Affiliated Companies.

The purpose of the Latino Youth Leadership Conference is to train young men on how to lead and succeed in their endeavors by providing educational workshops and connecting them with powerful and prominent community leaders who offer hope, inspiration and guidance. The conference is geared towards promoting a culture of leadership and communication skills that are fundamental to achieving personal and professional success. In addition, Boys to Leaders Foundation aims to address and possibly offer solutions to ongoing and emerging cultural issues that are impacting the young men in our communities.

This is a FREE event, but registration is required to attend!
