About     Media      Past Events


The Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit (MYLS) is a one-day conference that brings together students, educators, parents, community leaders, state government, and other organizations from across the state. The goal of the MYLS is to provide participants with an inspiring experience to stimulate educational success and help shape the leaders of tomorrow.

Thank you to all those who participated in making the 2014 Multicultural Youth Leadership Summit possible! We could not have done it without you. Thanks to all our sponsors; American Express, Chevron, CoolSpeak and Zions Bank. We also want to give a shout out to all the educators who worked so hard to get their students there.

We are currently planning for the next Summit and look forward to providing an even better program in 2015. Hope to see you then!

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.

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.
