Seven TRiO Student Support Services students attended the NCLR Lideres Summit in New Orleans, Louisiana. The NCLR's Annual Conference is the largest gathering of its kind in the Hispanic community, serving as the meeting ground for over 23,000 community organization leaders, activists, and volunteers; elected and appointed officials; members of the corporate, philanthropic, and academic communities; senior citizens; college students; and youth. The Lideres Summit is a conference that brings together hundreds of college students to exchange ideas and learn about issues affecting their communities, such as higher education, career development, financial literacy, and advocacy. The event nurtures leadership development through hands-on workshops and provides an avenue for youth to network and meet students from across the nation. This year the TRiO Staff and students will present at this conference.
The 2014 NCLR Annual Conference will be from July 19-22, in Los Angeles, California
