Walk in My Shoes

Middle School WIMS: Friday, March 23, 2018
UC Irvine, Student Center

The 30th Annual Walk in My Shoes Youth Conference will bring together junior high and middle school students from all over Orange County to attend a day long youth conference.  Participants explore issues of identity and culture, develop their leadership skills and are exposed to examples of successful youth activism.  Our goal is to empower and mobilize students to work towards creating positive social change.

Students attend three one-hour workshops, choosing from over 20 different thought provoking sessions related around human relations.  Youth and experienced human relations presenters share their insights, experiences and expertise on subjects related to the theme.

Call for Presenters

We are always on the lookout for presenters who can offer youth-friendly workshops on topics related to youth organizing, social justice, youth activism, leadership, culture, identity, youth issues and healthy living.  Workshops are one-hour in length.
