Over 100 young men from the Houston area and surrounding communities will participate in the annual Youth Leadership Conference (YLC) that takes place Saturday March 24, 2018 at the University of Houston.

The free, one-day conference, which targets African-American young men ages 11-18, will be held in conjunction with the 81st Ninth District Meeting of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated that takes place March 22-25 at the Hyatt Regency Houston, TX.

The Youth Leadership Conference (YLC) will run from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on March 24 inside the University of Houston Student Center on the campus of University of Houston, 4455 University Drive, Houston, TX 77204.

The sessions will be facilitated by Omega Psi Phi Fraternity members from across the Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas and will focus on self-esteem, goal setting and academic success, health, social and personal responsibility and conflict resolution. Experts from industries ranging from law to health care will facilitate the workshops.

“We care our community and want to provide the young men with impactful skills they can you use as they mature into manhood,” said D. Kenneth Terrell, Ninth District Representative.

Considering the nation is currently enduring challenging times regarding the relationship between the minority communities and law enforcement, the conference will provide much needed support for young men in Cincinnati and surrounding communities.  The conference will play a vital role in teaching the young men to soar despite the challenges that they may face.

The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was founded in 1911 at Howard University in Washington, D.C. It has an international membership of 120,000 men in alumni and collegiate chapters throughout the United States as well as Asia, Africa, Great Britain, Europe, the Caribbean and the Middle East.
