Clark County Latino Youth Conference

The Clark County Latino Youth Leadership Conference is held every October. Our mission is:

To instill in our youth the value of education, which nurtures the mind, body, and spirit in order to develop a social consciousness that empowers them as leaders for social justice and civic responsibility in the greater community.

In 2020, we integrated virtual platforms as part of our outreach methods and were able to present Fuerte y Poderoso: Youth Leadership Conference even during Covid-19.

Internships

During this past year, we’ve had the honor and privilege of bringing on four amazing interns. What started as a partnership with the local Fort Vancouver MECHA students soon led to much more! Our founding mission to help Latino youth succeed is being actualized as we continue to leverage these young mentors to have a greater impact on their community while taking control of their futures. LLNW Interns work alongside trusted community professionals and experts in their field to bring students everything they need to know or are curious about mental health, behavioral health, and community resources. Our Interns co-create and lead each session, ensuring that our empowered youth voices are recognized every step of the way.
