The Santa Monica College Latino Center this Saturday, March 1, is presenting the 25th annual Latino/a Youth Conference at the Theatre Arts Main Stage on the SMC Main Campus.
This year’s conference theme is “The History, You, and The Future.” The conference features two keynote speakers: civil rights activist and United Farm Workers co-founder Dolores Huerta, and motivational speaker Roy Juarez, Jr., an advocate for homeless youth and education.
The daylong conference focuses on encouraging and motivating young Latinos and Latinas to pursue higher education and build strong foundations for future achievements. Open to high school seniors, as well as SMC students, the conference includes interactive workshops, peer panel discussions, and a college and career expo.
At the expo, conference attendees will have the opportunity to speak to representatives from several colleges and universities as well as to Latinos and Latinas working and pursuing careers in a wide variety of professions.
