Latina Youth Leadership Conference


6th Annual Latina Youth Leadership Conference

Thursday, February 28th 9am-3pm
University of Nebraska at Kearney
Open to 7th and 8th grade girls
"Be a girl with a purpose, a woman with attitude, and a lady with class"

Designed to develop leadership skills, enhance self-esteem, and instill cultural and ethnic pride while heightening awareness of the attainability of higher education, the conference will target middle school level girls of any ethnicity to help them understand the necessary academic steps they must take in high school that will prepare them for college acceptance.

The mission for this conference is to provide a fun yet educational environment in which the young ladies are given the opportunity to dream, learn, and grow. The conference will promote leadership while engaging in discussion about issues affecting the students, as well as a solution that will empower the young women to succeed in the face of challenge.

Conference is part of the Lambda Theta Nu Sorority Inc.'s philanthropy called "Last Tijeras" which means scissors. For more information visit
