1,000 sixth to twelve graders attended last year and 500 parents. The event is free and pre-registration is required at eventbrite.com under Davis, CA events or at http://www.ycoe.org

The Conference began fourteen years ago in the Roseville Joint Union High School District Board Trustee, Rene Aguilera, and kicks off one of many upcoming Cesar Chavez State Holiday Events.

Cesar Chavez was co-founder and president of the United Farm Workers, leading the union from the 1960s to his death at age 66 in 1993 and organized farm workers in several states. In 2000, Governor Gray Davis signed SB 984, asking that school districts give an hour of instruction in all schools around Chavez's March 31 Birthday about the UFW founder's lessons on non-violence, self-sacrifice and social justice. Then, in the afternoon, students are to engage in some form of public service appropriate for their age and grade called the Cesar Chavez Day of Service of Learning.

“The Cesar E. Chavez Youth Leadership Conference supplements what most school districts do on or around March 31 – his birthday and acts as a primer for learning”, said, Aguilera, also the conference coordinator, “We ask parents, students, educators and business and community leaders to come out and volunteer their time to teach and learn from each other on both days.”

Topics will include student financial aid, scholarships and career information including law, journalism, military, teaching, social welfare, art, music and dance, medicine, law enforcement and pro athletes and many other careers.

The Conference will feature several notable speakers and presenters from the Sacramento area education community and national organizations such as the SEIU Local 1000, Sacramento Central Labor Council, California Teacher's Association, Classified School Employees Association, KMAX Channel 31-KOVR Channel 13, The College Board, Community Colleges, State Universities and University of California Schools, Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Mexican American Legal Defense Education Fund, American G.I. Forum, La Raza Lawyers Association, League of United Latin American Citizens, UNIVISION, California Latino School Board Members Association, United Farm Workers of America, Latina Leadership Network, Labor Council of Latin American Advancement, Society of Hispanic Engineer Professionals and the National Council of La Raza.

A clip or part of the new movie - "Cesar Chavez" will also be shown. The motion picture opens nation wide on April 28, 2014.
