Iota Chapter Grant
Latino Youth Conference

On April 20, 2013, the Iota Chapter hosted the 10th Annual "Los Manos" Male Youth Leadership Conference. The objectives of our conference was to empower 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grade underrepresented/"at risk" male students through exposure to career opportunities, self-esteem, positive role models, and the overall encouragement to become productive members of society. Students had the opportunity to attend workshops pertaining to leadership, life choices and goal settings. Throughout the day we encouraged these students to perform well in school and go on to college using ourselves and our stories to help motivate them and let them know that anything is possible. For some students it's the first time in a college campus thus we provide a close experience for them by taking them to class rooms, Dorms, and the highlight for these students is the opportunity to have lunch on one of our top Dining Halls on Campus. Our conference not only gives them the tools and motivation to succeed but, it also provides a sense of freedom and allows them to feel like college students.

On behalf of the Iota Chapter of Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Inc. We would like to thank the SLB Foundation for their support. Without the help of the Foundation this event would have not been possible.
