For the past twenty five years, Latino students from throughout the Willamette Valley have come together for this annual event in honor of César E. Chávez. The conference began in 1990 with a small group of Portland Public School students. It has now grown to include schools from Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Linn, Benton, Marion, Lincoln, Polk and Yamhill Counties. This year there will be over 65 different high schools represented and over fifteen hundred student participants, it the largest Latino Student Leadership Conference in the Pacific Northwest.
Come motivation and an offer opportunities for Latino students to gain skills to help them prepare for the future.
