Making Our Voices Heard Through Advocacy & the Arts

YLS is a youth conference geared towards giving youth a platform to hear and learn from professionals regarding academics, decision making, and advocacy. YLS is a conference where youth are engaged with plenary sessions and interactive workshops with transferable knowledge across home, school, and community. In addition to networking with youth across the state, youth also become the teacher.

This 2-day leadership and arts summit allows future performers and activists to start building their path to success. Indiana Black Expo is committed to being a catalyst in promoting positive, relevant content to our youth for academic and social success.
