CALEXICO — San Diego State University-Imperial Valley campus' Associated Student Council will host its first Aztec Leadership Conference for local high school students May 5.
The event will offer sessions on the topics of becoming an effective leadership officer, self-empowerment as a leader and teamwork.
The conference, which organizers hope will become an annual event, is open to any interested high school student in the Imperial Valley, said Yulil Alonso-Garza, ASC president at SDSU-IVC.
Junior high students may also register, though it will be at the discretion of the ASC due to differing maturity levels between junior high and high school students, Alonso-Garza said.
Registration costs are $10 for individuals and $150 for a group of 20 students. The deadline for pre-registration is Tuesday, although participants may also register on-site the day of the event.
