Notice: JACL Youth Conference -- the last one...?

We've got in an announcement for what is being billed (somewhat cryptically) as "the final" official Youth Conference by the Japanese American Citizens League National Youth Council. We're not sure why this is the case, but it only seems to add to the interest of this year's event in St. Paul for student leaders.

Release: The 2009 JACL National Youth Conference will take place from June 26 to June 28 at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

This Conference is for youth ages 14-25. This Youth Conference is also the LAST official Youth Conference put forth by the National Youth/Student Council. Be sure to take part in this legacy.

The theme of this Conference, IMPACT!: Your Community, Your Generation, Your JACL, is centered on empowering today's youth to move this earth through learning about how we can impact our community as Asian Americans, engage our generation by marrying old school and new school techniques, and create a JACL image that is unique to youth.

Unlike Youth Conferences before, this year's events will focus on developing professional skills that often become useful further down the road. Participants will get the chance to engage in team building activities, learn how to network professionally and socially, and have fun while doing so.
