Student Leadership Conference

The Oregon TRIO Association (OTA) organizes an annual Student Leadership Conference (SLC) designed to develop essential leadership skills in students for their future success each year. These conference workshops are aimed at teaching participants how to develop skills in specific areas of leadership so that they may integrate them into their daily lives, to bring about changes in their communities, families and for their own personal growth. We also aim to encourage students to explore their academic and career interests in pursuit of their goals and their future success.
The conference takes a hands on and practical approach to learning by presenting participants with choices, providing them with the opportunity to ask questions, encouraging dialogue among themselves, and helping students to better understand their role as leaders and the various ways leadership might present itself.
