Volunteers needed for Latino Youth Conference

Good afternoon!

The 19th Annual Latino Youth Conference at Grand Rapids Community College on March 6th, 2018, is quickly approaching!

The goal of the Latino Youth Conference (LYC) is to develop and empower youth leadership in the community; strengthen the sense of community among Latino youth in West Michigan; bring youth leaders of the community together to create better crossroads of understanding and connections; and create meaningful connections between area youth and adults.

Theme: El Poder de Soñar – The Power of Dreams

Greeting students and staff upon arrival

Assisting school counselors

Escorting student groups to assigned breakout sessions
