• IYLC @ PSU Feb 23

    Thank you to everyone who made the 6th Annual International Youth Leadership Conference a great success!

    We are grateful to the educators and staff at PSU for their 3rd year of support in celebrating the linguistic and cultural assets that our Emergent Bilingual Students bring to Portland Public Schools. We also appreciate the support of PPS staff and teachers who  helped to register their students, as well as dozens of presenters and exhibitors from our community who signed up to share their valuable knowledge and experience with the hundreds of EBs who brought their enthusasiam for the day.


    The IYLC is an opportunity for students to learn and network with fellow students, educators and community leaders in the Portland area.

    In the morning, students partake in a general assembly and presentation by a keynote speaker. Students then break into cohorts for two separate workshops focusing on themes of leadership, multi-cultural appreciation, and preparation for college/career. Students also have opportunities to meet with college and business recruiters and campus tours provided by Portland State Univeristy.
