Events - LEAP Education Conference & Legislative Day




LEAP Education Conference & Legislative Day
LEAP’s annual education conference and legislative day, a three-day event held in Tacoma and Olympia, is its most significant annual activity.  In February 2010, of 800+ participants, more than 600 were middle-school, high-school, and college students. In the past, the three-day conference has featured an academic fair and a broad range of educational workshops, including ACT test preparation, college scholarships, tips for navigating college, immigration, Latinos in media, parent involvement, cultural awareness, gang prevention, leadership training, and more.

In the past several years, guest speakers have included Governor Christine Gregoire, Governor Gary Locke, U.S. Senator Patty Murray, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell, U.S. Congressman Adam Smith, State Senator Paull Shin, author Alejandra Rincón, and others.

Other highlights include students learning about and getting engaged in civics and government, topped by a trip to Olympia to talk to state elected official about educational policies. And there’s entertainment provided by students, assisted each year by Dr. Loco of Dr. Loco’s Rockin’ Jalapeño Band.
