The 2020 Conference

The 2020 Conference is a week-long empowerment and capacity building experience for high school students. We are supported 100% by individual donations from community members and we still need your help.

The 2020 Conference returned to Oakland in July 2018 for our second year! The first two years have been a great success—help us make this project sustainable by donating today! This is a fiscally-sponsored project of Youth Education for Success, a California 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Click below to make a tax-deductible contribution today. Visit for details.
