This year theme is, "BLACK: Blossoming, Learning, and Advancing with Confidence and Knowledge"
The Leslie Campbell Black Youth Leadership Conference is a two-day, one-night weekend youth conference put on by ACE of the Student Recruitment and Retention Center (SRRC) at UC Davis for students who identify as black, African American, African or part of the African Diaspora.
The purpose of this conference is to introduce, prepare and engage local high school students of the diaspora to the power of higher education and ultimately offer a first hand experience of organized community and individual growth and development. We aspire for students to develop a sense of self and construct a positive identity revolving around their blackness, “race,” and “gender” through empowerment and intentional reflection. During this weekend, students will be exposed to workshops around identity, scholarship, achievement and contemporary issues within the Black community. The conference will provide powerful, reflective, and affirming spaces to inspire the youth. Students will be mentored by other black college students throughout the weekend to create community in an educational space.
This year's theme is "BLACK: Blossoming, Learning, and Advancing with Confidence and Knowledge." Our theme is centered around the idea that while individuals may desire similar outcomes and require similar resources, the process of growth and development looks different for each person. When considering each individual's process academically, but more importantly holistically, it's important to be intentional about our blossoming process in order to be fruitful and productive and achieve their unique success. ________________________________________________________________________________________________
