The 2023 Alsame Latino Youth Conference brought more than 500 high school students to Ferris State University on May 12, 2023. Highlights include a keynote address from Daniel Rivera and a College & Career Fair that brought 26 colleges, universities, and community partners together to promote post-secondary education for Latino Youth. The conference included interactive sessions and entertainment led by DJ Jonny Botello (Botello Beats), mural/graffiti artist Guillermo Sotelo (ASMA Speeks), and a live podcast led by Adnoris “Bo” Torres and Santiago Gayton. Sixteen workshop presentations were also offered during the conference; an agenda can be found here.
The conference would not have been possible without a fantastic conference planning committee that included various Ferris State University staff and members from the Alsame Executive Board. We would also like to thank Ferris State University President Bill Pink and his leadership team members for offering to host the conference for the first time since 2012.
The 2023 Alsame Latino Youth Conference was sponsored by Ferris State University, the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, Wayne State University and American Axle & Manufacturing, headquartered in Detroit.
An official 2023 conference report recap will be available later this summer. In the meantime, please enjoy some of the beautiful photos taken by Nedith Faro Photography:
