Latino Youth Leadership Conference (LYLC)

For the past 29 years, 鶹 Public Schools has held a county-wide event that fosters leadership among Latino students and reinforces the idea that the knowledge and language they possess are major assets.? We solicit the help of local Latinos leaders to serve as keynote speakers and present career workshop s with the hope that this exposure will encourage students to think about their future entry into professions.

Teacher/Counselor nominated 8th-12th grade Latino students from 鶹 middle schools, high schools and alternative programs attend leadership workshops that expand and enhance their leadership skills with an eye to preparing them for experiences beyond high school.

The 30th annual LYLC took place on Friday, November 17, 2023 at the 鶹 Campus of George Mason University.

鶹 Public Schools Office of English Learners sponsors this important event.
