About the MYC:

“ WSU's Multicultural Youth Conference includes 9th through 12th grade students from Northern Utah and beyond. Students participate in ethnic/cultural identity breakout sessions, expand their view of the world and community, learn about career and community opportunities through higher education and how to access higher education. A keynote speaker each year kicks off the conference, sending students off with a renewed sense of their dream and how Weber State University can help them achieve it.
