    Announcing the 8th Annual International Youth Leadership Conference

    IYLC 2019-20
    Friday, February 28, 2019
    Portland State University
    8:00 AM - 2:30 PM

    We are grateful to the educators and staff at Portland State University for their 5th 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. And a big shout out to the dozens of presenters and exhibitors from our community who will share their valuable knowledge and experience with the hundreds of EBs who bring their own 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 – Student Success Program Manager – ESL, 503-916-3097 fgarcia@pps.net
