Winter 2023 Youth Conference

The Los Angeles Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE) is proud to introduce the EmpowerLA Youth Conference, inviting at least four youth from each region throughout the Los Angeles City to participate in a one-day event with various workshops and presentations.

Topics include history and purpose of the neighborhood council system, brown act and Roberts rules of order as well as NC 101s. The program will also include speeches by city officials or elected officials, perhaps the Mayor. The program is executed in partnership with Departments such as RAP and Sanitation. At the conclusion of the conference, attendees will receive resources, including a headshot photo, to encourage their personal civic engagement and leadership in the community.

Youth interested in participating in the EmpowerLA Youth Conference must submit their application by Friday, October 6, 2023.

The EmpowerLA Youth Conference will offer a variety of workshops, networking opportunities, and resources. Learn more about the day-of activities by reviewing the event schedule.
