School/District Participant Registration

Registration Deadline: Mid February 2017

The sixth annual César E. Chávez Leadership Conference will be held on Friday, March 10, 2017 from 8 am to 3:30 pm on the campus of Southern Oregon University. This event will provide a forum for Latino youth (grades 9 - 12) to meet community leaders, take part in leadership and cultural workshops and learn about how to go to college. The day begins with check in at 8:00 am in the SOU Stevenson Union Rogue River Room and a welcome session at 9:05. A wrap up session and closing ceremony will be held from 3:00-3:30 pm. Lunch will be provided for the students as well as the chaperones.

We are inviting Southern Oregon and Northern California regional high schools to nominate a select number of students to attend this conference. We ask that two adults from each high school serve as chaperones during this event.

Transportation funds are available from Southern Oregon Educational Services District (SOESD) to provide chartered school buses to pick up students before school and return after hours, so please take advantage of that and make special transportation arrangements to attend the entire conference. Your school Business Manager may invoice the SOESD (attn: Charlie Bauer charlie_bauer@soesd.k12.or.us and Maurine Bridges maurine_bridges@soesd.k12.or.us) for teacher substitutions and transportation expenses associated with attending this conference.
