Cesar Chavez Conference March 9, 2018

Southern Oregon University is hosting the seventh annual César E. Chávez Leadership Conference on the SOU campus. The conference is a gathering of Latinx high school students/leaders from regional high schools. The goal of the day-long César E. Chávez Leadership Conference is to increase Latinx high school students’ preparation to become leaders and develop their knowledge about contemporary issues within the Latinx community. In addition, the conference strongly encourages Latino youth to pursue educational opportunities beyond high school. Participants attend workshops focusing on leadership, cultural arts, and college preparation. Students are assigned to groups hosted by SOU’s Latinx student ambassadors throughout the day’s events.

Our Mission
"To instill in our Latinx youth the value of education, which nurtures mind, body and spirit in order to develop a social consciousness that empowers them as leaders for social justice and civic responsibility in the greater community."
