Lasell College to Host Youth Citizenship Conference

May 24, 2012

Lasell College will host this year's MassSTAR (Massachusetts Students Accepting Responsibility) Citizenship Conference from June 8 - 10 on the College's Newton campus. This year marks the fifth year the College has hosted the group.

This three-day leadership conference is sponsored by the Massachusetts Youth Leadership Foundation (MYLF), a Massachusetts-based non-profit organization seeking to recognize, teach, and empower leadership in high school sophomores from across the state.

Conference organizers invite one sophomore from every Massachusetts-accredited public, private, charter, and vocational school to participate in an exciting, hands-on learning experience. Student delegates are nominated and chosen by their school principals, guidance counselors, teachers, and advisors, based on their demonstrated and potential leadership ability. Since its inception in 1974, MYLF's annual programs have reached more than 5,000 students.

The MassSTAR Citizenship Conference presents three days of intensive programming to challenge the student delegates, broaden their perspectives, and bring out their inner leaders. Through a series of panel speakers, group learning activities, and intensive small group discussions, participants will learn to be proactive leaders in their own communities. The students then take these skills and bring them back to their home school environments.

Lasell Dean of Undergraduate Admission James Tweed and Assistant Director of Admission Jill Reitzell will participate in a panel for the conference about the college admissions and financial aid processes.
