The Multicultural Youth Leadership Day is a half-day event for 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students and educators to engage in civic engagement and leadership.

Overview of Event

Every year the Utah Division of Multicultural Affairs invites high school students to attend Multicultural Youth Leadership Day. In the event's early years, it was held at the Utah State Capitol during the legislative session. Now the event is envisioned to be held at a variety of college campuses to immerse students in the higher-education learning environment.

The half-day event engages youth in civic engagement and helps them gain an understanding of the importance of becoming informed and involved leaders.. This is also an opportunity for students to explore service-learning through speakers and breakout sessions that affirm there are many ways to be civically engaged.

"We attend many conferences each year and the Multicultural Youth Leadership Day is definitely one of the best. The whole thing is very engaging and relevant!”
