On May 17 from 9:00 a.m.- 1:30 p.m., the Yolo County Office of Education will present the 7th annual Yolo County African American Student Leadership Conference (AASLC) at Woodland Community College.

The event is open to all 7th-12th grade students who attend schools within Yolo County.

This year’s in-person African American Student Leadership Conference will maintain the most popular features while enhancing learning, engagement, and growth across several key elements:

  • Engage In The Opportunity Fair & Collegiate Panel Discussion – Join several Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), as well as collegiate student organizations for the educational outreach opportunity. Connect 1:1 with representatives across the country to unpack the many ways you can build a strong future after high school.
  • Get Inspired By Keynote Speakers and Mentors From Community Professionals and Thought Leaders – Join leaders throughout northern California and beyond, get ready to be engaged, moved, and motivated by some of the most prominent and relevant leaders in the Black community. 
  • Build Your Networks and Meet New Friends – From collaborative experiences to forums for 1:1 conversation – take advantage of the opportunities to connect, network, and expand your circle of connections. Those magical hallway conversations are now not limited by time or space. You’ll be able to learn, chat, and reflect with other youth from across Yolo County.

Register for the event here.

The first 100 students to register will receive a “swag box”.

The deadline to register is May 16, 2022.
