On behalf of OneFuture Coachella Valley, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our fifth annual Student Leadership Conference. College completion is a critical mechanism driving upward mobility, because it unlocks doors to opportunities. As a result, educating the next generation of leaders, like you, is a key priority for OneFuture Coachella Valley and our regional partners. Our Student Leadership Conference brings together local and national leaders to help you successfully navigate the college going process through graduation and entrance into the workforce, while developing and sharpening your leadership skills.The 2018 conference theme is “Peace of Mind” and focuses on maintaining and improving your mental health and wellbeing in college. Since mental health and academic success are directly linked, it is important for you to identify which learning and mental health strategies and resources work best for you. This year we have two excellent keynote speakers, as well as several great workshops. On Tuesday, June 19th, Monica Lozano, College Futures Foundation CEO/ President, will share her story on becoming a leader in business, education and philanthropy. Monica will also share tips on how to manage your health to prepare you for your academic and professional journey. In addition, on Wednesday, June 20th, Crystal Dilworth, Ph.D candidate in molecular neuroscience at Caltech University, will focus on how the brain works and offer tips on how to train your brain to help you successfully reach your goals in life. We encourage you to review the conference schedule to help you build your personalized itinerary and prepare to actively participate in all sessions.Special thanks go to our sponsors, partners and presenters that are contributing their time and resources to help you reach your goals and dreams. It is their contributions that make the Leadership Conference possible! Please take the time to thank them during the conference.We are honored to work with you this year and hope the conference will help you cultivate and nurture mental health habits to support your success in college and life. See you at the conference!
