The 28th Annual Conference of Young Leaders
Over 100 young leaders from across the US are heading to Arlington, VA for the 28th Annual YouthBuild AmeriCorps Conference of Young Leaders. The three-day gathering beginning on March 7 provides young people an opportunity to sharpen their leadership skills and to network with current and former students from over 50 YouthBuild programs.
The theme of this year’s conference is Aspire to Lead, Inspire to Serve. Conference attendees are scheduled to participate in workshops and activities focused on topics such as leadership development, financial literacy, and post-secondary education.
Ushering in this year’s conference is the National Rural Youth Caucus from March 5 to March 7. The gathering of 21 young people from YouthBuild programs in rural communities serves as a chance to connect with one another and deeply examine the unique challenges faced by youth in the rural US.
