De Anza High to host free youth leadership conference April 29


The community is invited to a free Global Youth Leadership Conference for youth, their parents and mentors at De Anza High on Saturday, April 29.

The event, hosted by the John Maxwell Team — a global business offering certified mentors and coaching, among other services — will begin at 1 p.m. in the De Anza High School Theater, 5000 Valley View Road, El Sobrante.

The event, which is touring the world, aims to reach a half-million youth with the aim of tackling lack of confidence, fear of failure, and bullying among young people.

The group also promotes positive attitudes, respect for oneself and others, and falling forward to success.
