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

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