18th Annual Adelante Latino Conference

On behalf of this year’s organizing committee, I would like to invite you and your students to attend the Sweetwater District’s 18th Annual Adelante Latino Conference.

This year’s conference will take place at Olympian High School on Saturday February 22nd from 8 am – 2 pm.  Our featured keynote speaker will be artist and community organizer, Macedonio Arteaga.  We will feature 17 career and college-oriented workshops from Latino male professionals and students will have an opportunity to attend 3 sessions of their choice.  Please see attached flier and registration form.

Students will receive a free continental breakfast and lunch and some limited transportation will be provided for schools that are furthest from Olympian High.  We are limiting this year’s attendance to the first 400 middle and high school students who register. 

Each school should have a designated contact person who is responsible for registering students.  Our next conference committee meeting is Thursday January 30th at 3:30 pm in the District Office Board Conference Room.  Please make sure your school has a designated contact person and send them to this meeting, where we will be discussing registration and final logistics.

Thank you and please let us know if you have any questions.
