Young, Gifted & Black

February 23, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

YGB utilizes African American history and culture in such a way that motivates and empowers attendees to take control of their future. The purpose of this conference is to promote positive self-esteem, social consciousness, and cultural awareness, while simultaneously emphasizing the importance of higher education. We hope that the workshops and interactions with current African American UW students, staff, and faculty and the community will provide both the resources and role models to help students make a commitment to pursue higher education. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience the UW and discover all the possibilities awaiting.

Target Group: African American high school students with a 3.0 or higher GPA

Additional Information: YGB is FREE! Food will be provided throughout the day.  Transportation to the University of Washington-Seattle campus will be the only cost to you. Legal guardians may also be present for our Parent Program which will hold essential information sessions in the morning.
