UC Davis Presents the 20th Annual Cesar Chavez Youth Leadership Conference and Celebration

May 14

The Cesar Chavez Youth Leadership Conference and Celebration is a free college and career motivational event for junior high, high school, community college students, parents, and community members. Explore college choices, connect with community resources and learn from professional role models to help plan your future career.

This annual conference introduces the value of attending college - particularly to individuals who may not be considering higher education due to a lack of information or financial resources.  Each year, the conference delivers an engaging program that:

  • Nurtures the concept that all individuals are leaders
  • Provides information on the University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) admission requirements
  • Includes information on the California Community College (CCC) matriculation and enrollment process
  • Introduces college success resources and STEM career workforce opportunities for the public and the private sector

This free conference averages over 1800 attendees from predominantly low-income and underrepresented backgrounds each year.  Attendees leave empowered, believing they can achieve their goals and knowing their resources. Enjoy live cultural entertainment, performances, music, and more. Admission and parking are free.
