Youth Business Conference

OUR STORY

We are hosting the first annual Youth Business Conference ("YBC")  at Hayward City Hall free for 100 students in Hayward on April 6. The Youth Business Conference will inspire, educate and connect students to Silicon Valley executives, professionals in the community and Hayward leadership. Please consider making a donation for our scholarship fund.

Growing up in Hayward our youth can be easily uninspired by the environment and what we experience from day to day. On April 6 2017 we are having a youth business conference to help and give us a chance for a better future. A lot of kids in Hayward don't have opportunity to do this. At the end of the day we are the future and the world is in our hands. Lets innovate!! -Darion Smith

Standing out from others in the new millennium is probably one of the hardest things one can attempt to do. By standing out I am referring to being yourself and perusing your dreams without the fear of society involved. Society pushes and forces it in a certain direction, making it seem like being different or doing something different is a crime. It takes guts to stand out and be yourself in this worlds society. Everyone attending our Youth Business Conference is doing that exact same thing, with your help we can take the steps necessary to show people that we are unique and host an event that helps open people's eyes towards our cause. The city of Hayward is a special place but highly underrated compared to the surrounding cities. We are here to prove that Hayward is a city of talent, and we ask that you join us, and enjoy the wonders of being free from society and attempting to live our life dreams, the wonders my colleagues and I are attempting to live by. -Jose Grande

The youth is the hope of our future, My name is Emilio Vasquez and I have came a long way from where I'm at today. From traveling around the U.S to playing baseball for the American National Team, I have realized that from hard work and dedication you can achieve anything you set your mind too. On April 6th the brightest individuals from Mt. Eden High School are going to be attending a youth business conference at the Hayward City Hall. Supporting this business conference will give a lot back to our community and the youth. -Emilio Vasquez
