Latinx Leads Virtual Leadership Experience

Student Engagement & SGA will sponsor five (5) currently enrolled Atlantic Cape students for the Latinx Leads Virtual Leadership Conference.

Deadline to Sign up is Friday, September 17th or when slots are filled. https://forms.gle/5n6dAjQJHx96hcmS9

The Latinx Leads Student Leadership Conference is the largest national gathering of Latinx student leaders and campus-based advisors to address the most critical topics of diversity and social justice challenging our Latinx community within colleges and universities. Through experiential workshops, keynote sessions, and round table discussions teams of students will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills needed to advance Latinx- related causes and increase their participation in leadership roles within their campuses. During the conference students will be led through a facilitated workshop to develop a program or event (i.e. Campus Action Plan) that the team selects to work on together on in order to bring back a piece of the Latinx Leads Conference (LLC) experience to their own campuses.

Visit latinxleads.org/ for more information on the conference.
