For the past five years AsEA has been holding a conference for adults, but this year it's all for high school students, focusing on leadership and activism. It should be a really great event, with a keynote address from Dennis Kim (aka Denizen Kane) of Youth Speaks. And it's all free! For more information, and to register, go to the AsEA website here.
