RISE Leadership Youth Conference
July 5, 2021 - July 10, 2021
Anyone can change the world, but none of us are given a road map on how to do it. The route to action is not easy and sometimes we get lost along the way. We get distracted by our busy lives and many times are overwhelmed by the idea of starting something new. The mission of the RISE LEADERSHIP YOUTH CONFERENCE (RLYC) is to help provide a clear path of how you can start on your journey to becoming your best YOU!
