The Latino Youth Leadership Conference brings together Latinx high school students in Nevada for six days of leadership training and development.
Students are housed in the dorms of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. During their stay, participants interact with a variety of topics and explore cultural identity.
High School students between the ages of 16 and 18 are encouraged to apply. Participants are selected from all socio-economic backgrounds, academic standings, and from all over the state of Nevada.
Participants attend the LYLC at NO cost to the student or their families. All accommodations and materials are provided
The mission of the LYLC is to encourage our participants to pursue and complete higher education. We also aim to empower our participant's leadership development skills, and encourage community service.
The LYLC emphasizes culture, community, and family, as we advocate those for our participants to succeed.
