Be the Change conference for youth leaders coming in May

The Snoqualmie Valley Community Network’s Be the Change youth leadership conference is 8:30 a.m. Saturday, May 3, at Chief Kanim Middle School, 32627 S.E. Redmond-Fall City Road, Fall City.

Over the last seven years, the leadership conference has evolved into a place for local teens to be inspired about making a difference. Youth voice and leadership are important. The conference is about hearing those voices and expanding that leadership.

Luis Ortega, leadership coach, will lead the conference, accompanied by trained youth co-facilitators and other adult presenters from the community.

Topics for this year’s conference, selected by youth, include:

• Making friends and social skills

• Managing stress

• Making sense of legalized marijuana

• Preventing sexual assault and sexual bullying

• Live it up! Don’t give it up!—suicide prevention

• Farm to table food.
