On Friday, March 25th Sacramento based teenagers attended the 4th Annual African American Student Leadership Conference at California State University. This extraordinary event, hosted by The Sacramento City Unified School District, has inspired and uplifted our local teens to change their life and be more involved in leadership positions in school as well as the community. Activities conducted at the conference provided our youth with the tools necessary for self respect, health, wellness, community leadership and conflict resolution. The
students rejoiced in African American culture, lifestyle, and history, and the teens were also able to speak on everyday situations and circumstances during an early morning teen forum session.
Contributing services from Luther Burbank High School, Drop Out and Recovery, WISEE Queen Dream Institute are just a few to name of youth development programs that assisted during this annual celebration. In hopes this event will continue next year- The profound impact on these teens, truly looks forward to participating again and bringing more friends to join this mission.
