Close to 500 elementary, middle and high school students are expected to participate in the César E. Chávez Youth Leadership Conference on Saturday, April 13, in Freeborn Hall at UC Davis. Topics of discussion will include student financial aid, scholarships and career information including law, journalism, military, teaching, social welfare, art, music and dance, medicine, law enforcement and professional athletics.

“The overall goal of the conference is to help youths learn how to be community leaders; how to become involved; how to learn about social and political issues; and how to pursue educational opportunities beyond high school,” said founder Rene Aguilera of Roseville.

The conference will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., kicking off with a chorizo burrito breakfast, pan dulce and hot chocolate during registration. College recruiters will give presentations and answer questions, and information will be provided that is designed to empower parents to become stronger advocates for their children’s education.

Lunchtime brings a talent show featuring folkloric dancers, Aztec dancers and trick roping cowboy and whip master James Barrera.

The conference is free. Pre-registration is not required but is recommended, at www.hear2000.org.

Sponsors include UC Davis, the Hispanic Empowerment Association of Roseville and the California Latino School Boards Association.

For more information, call Aguilera at 916-532-5998 or fax registration applications to 916-782-2040.
