Latino Youth Conference

At its inception, the Latino Youth Conference (LYC) was a grassroots project created by members of the Grand Rapids community. The goal was to encourage and motivate West Michigan high school students to think about education and career goals beyond high school. Since that time, LYC has evolved and changed its targeted focus to middle school-aged students. After several years the conference has returned to its roots as a community-centered initiative led by community leaders.

The Hispanic Center of Western Michigan has stepped out front to enhance the impact of the Latino Youth Conference in West Michigan. GRCC remains steadfast in our support by serving as host to the annual event.

We look forward to the next installment of the conference on Tuesday, March 2, 2021.

Please direct questions, donations, sponsorships, and support to the Hispanic Center.
