March 16th, 2019 | Pacifica High School 600 E. Gonzales Rd., Oxnard, CA 93036
This year, nearly 200 young people and adult allies attended the 16th Annual FNL Youth Leadership Conference. This year’s theme was “Rising Up Around the World”. Our youth planners came up with this theme with the aim to recognize the many young people who are becoming the next-generation of leaders – many of these new young leaders also represent minority populations such as LGBT, people of color, or marginalized groups.
Workshops for the day included:
– Youth as leaders and how to make community change
– Risks around vaping and other tobacco product use
– Alcohol and other drug awareness
– Life after high school
– Healthy relationships and communication
– The truth about tobacco, e-cigarettes, and vaping
This year’s conference was another successful event, planned by and for the young people of Ventura County! Stay tuned to find out about next year’s!
