Walk in My Shoes Youth Conferences bring together high school 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.
