LYLC is so much more!
Familia | Support
The Latino Youth Leadership Conference builds "familia".
Participants begin as strangers and leave with a large network and support group that serves as an extended family.
Education | Empowerment
Participants learn the importance and the empowering nature of education. Our students are challenged to reach their educational goals and are provided with ample support to ensure they fulfill their highest potential.
Leadership | Service
Building a powerful sense of community begins with volunteering. Students engage in service projects during and after the conference. Participants also explore and build their leadership styles in the context of service.
Familias are forever. Participants are placed in "Familias" throughout the week of the conference. Familias consist of 9-10 participants and 2 Peer Facilitators. Peer Facilitators undergo a year-long training and highly selective process. The experience of the LYLC would not be the same without our peer facilitators.
