Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit

The Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit is a one-day conference bringing educators, parents, community leaders, state government, and other organizations together to discuss educational advancement, future job placement, and empowerment for Utah’s growing diverse student population.

Background
In support of Governor Gary R. Herbert’s education initiative ‘66% by 2020,’ a state goal that 66% of all working-age Utahns will hold a post-secondary degree or certificate by 2020, the Utah Multicultural Affairs Office hosted the first annual “Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit” on April 30, 2013 at the Davis Conference Center in Layton, Utah.

The Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit is still in it’s infancy but has received much praise from those in attendance. This event is a great opportunity for the students and educators to connect with one another and provides an environment of collaboration.

Multicultural Affairs plans to host this event Every Fall before school starts with hopes that at each summit students learn how they can be agents of positive social change.

Here is what some students have to say about the summit:
