The Youth Amig@s at Casa de Esperanza have been working diligently to put together the 5th Annual Latin@ Youth Conference in recognition of February as Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. This year's conference theme is Empowering Communities y Tomando Acción.
The Latin@ Youth Conference's goal is to provide Latin@ youth ages 11-18 with an opportunity to attend a fun-filled, one-day summit and take part in discussions and activities that will enhance their awareness on topics such as human/labor trafficking, self-care through art and yoga, drug abuse, healthy and unhealthy relationships, and LGBTQ issues.
During the conference, the youth will have an opportunity to meet and hear from members of Inver Hills Community College on college access. There will be other special guests and some amazing prizes!
Registration closes on February 20th and is open to the first 50 youth who register.
