2022 Latino Youth Conference

The 2022 Alsame Latino Youth Conference was a big success! Thank you to everyone that made it possible and a special thank you to Grand Valley State University for serving as host. We are putting together a conference report to summarize this year’s conference and will be posting it on this page soon. The 2023 Conference Host Application link will also be available soon.
