Utah Latinx Youth Symposium (ULYS) is a state-wide program available to incoming high school Seniors. Our upcoming event in the Summer of 2018, will host students from all over Utah, Eastern Nevada, Southern Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado, to participate in a two-day event in which students will learn to better navigate issues surrounding their educational paths. Our training and workshops will engage in topics related to high school completion, college access, employment opportunities, social justice awareness, and civic participation.
Our goal is to better prepare our students for the future decisions they are expected to make upon high school completion. In addition to information workshops, our students will be in direct contact with trained mentors that represent various local areas of education, business, activism and government throughout the symposium.
Registration for the Utah Latinx Youth Symposium will be available Spring of 2018.
