Young Men's Leadership Conference

Friday, October 28, 2016

Senator Leyva hosted a Young Men’s Leadership Conference on Friday, October 28, 2016 at the InTech Center in Fontana.  Over 150 attendees from throughout the 20th State Senate District benefited from the presentations of individuals who invested their time and expertise to explain life lessons they had learned outside of their traditional academic experience. These presentations came from numerous successful individuals from a wide array of vocational disciplines including labor, education, public, private, and nonprofit sectors.  Among other subjects, the presentations included: financial literacy; career tech educational opportunities; interview and job retention skills development; the benefits of having a mentor; and overcoming obstacles.

The attendees not only received a wealth of information at the event and was so successful that it will likely become an annual event.
