Themed "Discover the Future"/"Descubre el Futuro", Encuentros Leadership of North County San Diego will be hosting two simultaneous conferences AT TWO NORTH SAN DIEGO COUNTY COLLEGES...FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ENCUENTROS HISTORY! Offering our outreach to more junior high and high school Hispanic males in North San Diego County, we have increased the number of participants and will be including schools from Escondido and other surrounding areas. Volunteers, local businesses for the Career Expo, and workshop presenters are welcome to participate!

The non-profit (501c3) organization ENCUENTROS LEADERSHIP OF NORTH COUNTY SAN DIEGO was founded after the alarming statistical report about the 53% high school drop-out rate in (North) San Diego County of Hispanic males. With statistics as this are published, the likeliness of these drop-out rates inevitably increases...BUT NOT ANYMORE! The Encuentros Leadership pilot program in the City of Vista has proven its value and imapacy on young Hispanic boys and have improved the individual performance ratios of these young boys in such a way that the Encuentros Leadership curriculum will soon be high school and college transfer accreditted here in California.

In preparation for Palomar College's opportunity to host its second of the six previous Education and Career Exploration Conferences, we are seeking to provide the volunteer support needed to execute a successful event. Sign up sheets for this conference, whether be interested in participating at the Mira Costa or Palomar College conference sites will be made available on our Volunteers 4 You FB group page. For further information regarding this event as a volunteer or workshop presenter, e-mail your inquiries to: volunteers4you@gmail.com, Subject: Encuentros Conference 2010- 'volunteer', 'workshop presenter', or 'Career Expo'.
