HSU’s first annual youth conference was held in 1993 and has continued to inspire and educate middle school and high school students from different areas in California.
What is HYEC?
Our annual Hmong Youth Empowerment Conference (HYEC) aims to inform, educate, and demonstrate to Hmong youth about the opportunities that are available to them after high school. Every year we hold workshops to create a space where we are able to address and discuss issues within the Hmong community, learn about the roots of our Hmong heritage, and promote higher education.
Volunteering and Mentors
For those who are not among the youth community, but are interested in joining the various mentoring or planning committees in efforts to make this event possible, HSU also extends an opportunity for you to participate behind the scenes. You will be able to take on leadership roles and improve your organizational skills upon participation.
Applications for the upcoming 2017-2018 HYEC event are not yet opened and will be released towards the end of this year.
