This conference is open to Latino high school students from Multnomah, Washington, Marion, Polk, Yamhill, Linn-Benton and Clackamas Counties. The goal of the conference is to provide information, motivation and an opportunity for Latino students to gain skills to help them prepare for their future. This is the largest Latino high school student leadership conference in the state of Oregon. Last year approximately 1,500 students participated in this event. The conference schedule is from 8:00am-4:00pm, however the College/Career Fair will run from 10:00 am-2:00 pm including a lunch break. The College/Career Fair will be one of the sessions that students will be REQUIRED to attend.
It is our goal to see Oregon private, nonprofit higher education well represented at the 2016 César E. Chávez Leadership Conference.
