Announcing the 7th Annual International Youth Leadership Conference
Friday, February 22, 2019
Portland State University
8:00 AM - 2:30 PM
We are grateful to the educators and staff at Portland State University for their 4rd 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 as they help to register their students, as well as dozens of presenters and exhibitors from our community will 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.
If you have any questions about how you can support the IYLC, Contact: Francisco Garcia – Program Manager – ESL, 503-916-3097 firstname.lastname@example.org
