For the second year, California State University, Dominguez Hills hosted the California Legislative Black Caucus’s annual African American Leaders for Tomorrow leadership and college preparedness conference on campus. Sixty African American high school students from throughout the state were selected to participate in the program that aims to cultivate the next generation of African Americans to become leaders in their communities and the state.
From July 23-26, the sophomores, juniors, and seniors met with state leaders and educators who introduced them to important community, government, business, and education issues. They also took part in workshops and discussions led by CSU Dominguez Hills faculty, staff and alumni on an array of topics ranging from personal branding and imaging to the college experience and college readiness, as well as receive advice on personal finance management and career planning.
