On Thursday, February 21, middle school leadership students from all nine Elk Grove Unified School District middle schools will attend the 12th Annual Middle School Leadership Conference from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Antioch Progressive Baptist Church.
The district-wide conference is designed for middle school students involved in student leadership, peer counseling, conflict management, Students Reaching Out, WEB (Where Everybody Belongs), Club Live and Teens for Tolerance. This year’s theme is “Take A Stand…Be Who You Are!”
One of the hallmarks of the conference is the concept of peers teaching peers. High school students from Elk Grove, Pleasant Grove and Sheldon high schools, along with other adult presenters will serve as facilitators of the conference.
