Each year, the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Milwaukee Area Technical College, Milwaukee Public Schools, Marquette University, University of Wisconsin-Parkside, Mount Mary College, and several community-based organizations work collaboratively to organize the Southeast Asian Youth Education and Career Conference.
The 2015 conference will be held on April 16th, 2015 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The theme for this year’s conference is “Inventing Yourself: College and Beyond.”
The conference provides opportunities for Southeast Asian-American high school students to explore education and career opportunities, to interact with professionals from Wisconsin colleges and universities and other professions.
The conference also brings dynamic keynote speakers and presenters, who can serve as role models in their respective profession for Southeast Asian-American youths.
The conference’s aim is to increase the high school retention and graduation rates for Southeast Asian-American students and the skilled workforce of Southeast Asian-Americans in the Milwaukee area by encouraging them to obtain their post-secondary education.
Past conferences had attracted a great deal of interests from high school students and administrators, and we are expecting more than 300 students for this year’s conference.
