The HISPA Role Model Bureau will host its 2010 Youth Conference for 8th graders on Friday, June 11, on the Princeton University campus.
The one-day event will be attended by schools that participated in the HISPA Role Model Program during the 2009/2010 school year, which include schools in Perth Amboy, New Brunswick, and Red Bank.
The HISPA Youth Conference is designed to tackle the issue of high school drop-out rates by emphasizing the importance of a secondary education, and exposing the students to role models who have overcome barriers and become successful in a variety of careers. The conference’s theme, “Take Action! Achieve Your Dreams”, reinforces HISPA’s goal of encouraging students to pursue higher education by having role models share their stories of achievement. Additionally, the students will learn about career possibilities in a variety of fields, including academia, public policy, business, science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
HISPA is pleased to announce AT&T as the TRANSFORM Sponsor of this conference.
