Jessica Ayala has been a wonderful student in my "Spanish & Entrepreneurship" course this semester. She's engaged, prepared and always has something to add to the conversation. So when she told me that she was involved in organizing the Latino Youth Conference on campus, I wasn't surprised to see that she's also engaged in the community and creating value for Latino youth.
SPAN 232 and 332 students: You can volunteer at this event and use the hours towards your total of 28 for the semester.
Here are more details from Jessica:
I am pleased to announce that the LYC committee has been working hard to plan the conference. We now need your help to truly make the difference.
The Latino Youth Conference (LYC) will take place April 17, 2009 from 8:00AM-2:30PM at the Union. I want to invite your RSO to volunteer! The conference this year will be bigger than last years. We expect about 125 high school students from across East Central Illinois. Since we anticipate so many students we will need all the help we can get.
We will hold mandatory volunteer trainings on April 6, 2009 at 6:00PM or April 14, 2009 at 5:00PM at La Casa. Please pick one time to attend.
If you or your RSO is interested in volunteering please contact me or Jessica Ayala at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible before the orientations!
Please feel free to forward this information to anyone that might be interested.
Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
