Latinos In Action Youth Leadership Conferences

Each year, Latinos In Action hosts Youth Leadership Conferences for High School, Junior High, and Middle School LIA Students.  Conferences bring together thousands of LIA students on college campuses to receive education through workshops and speakers, as well as highlighting teachers and students through awards, scholarships, or other recognition.  Students also perform writing and poetry, display visual arts, and provide cultural performances.  The LIA Conference focuses on encouraging youth to succeed in High School, and graduate from a Higher Education Institution.

This year, four conferences will be offered in Utah and Florida. Registration and Partner participation details are below:


All UT registration and submissions are due Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 11:59PM.
