    LULAC has striven to promote, develop, and enhance leadership skills among youth in Pima County. The philosophy behind the Youth Leadership Conference for the last 26 years has been to encourage and motivate students to remain in school, set goals and reinforce education as the key to success.  Another key factor has been to expose students to an environment that fosters positive relationships among peers, teachers and the community.
