The 2016 Taos Youth Leadership Conference will take place at Taos Charter School, September 22nd, 2016 in the gym.
The event is scheduled from 3:00pm to 9:00pm for the purpose of providing youth leadership training (3:00 – 5:30) and conducting an Opening Ceremony with Xiuhtezcatl martinez and others from 6:00 – 9:00pm.
“It will be a highly educational, fun, and inspiring event and we are honored to partner with Taos Charter School. The Keynote Speaker, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez is known around the world as a true leader, even at the young age of 16. His ability to reach young people and inspire them to take action on what matters to them is legendary.
We invite 8th grade leaders and potential leaders to participate in his RYSE Leadership Training Introduction that will take place from 3:00pm – 5:30pm. A light dinner will be provided to all youth participants.
There is no charge for youth, parents, and community members to participate in this event, however, a suggested $5 donation will help to offset operating costs. We are still raising funds to pay for conference lunches on September 24th, 2016.
Thank you so much for helping us reach our conference goals, which are to
- help unite local and global leadership efforts.
- raise awareness about rising youth leadership, and
- learn how to take action on what matters to you.”
