The Lompoc Youth Commission will hold the 6th Annual TOTAL (Teaching Our Teens As Leaders) Conference with the 2019 theme Life: Living It From Experiences, Monday, March 4, at the Dick DeWees Community & Senior Center, 1120 E. Ocean Ave.

TOTAL is a teen leadership conference open to all junior high and high school students.

The keynote speaker and breakout sessions are designed to teach, motivate, empower, energize and inspire participants.

The Lompoc youth commissioners have been working to develop workshops, secure an exciting motivational speaker, and develop a day when teens can learn leadership skills and become empowered to make a difference in their own lives.

The conference begins at 8:30 a.m. with check-in and a light breakfast, with the sessions beginning at 9 a.m. and concluding at 2:15 p.m. The day includes breakfast, lunch, three breakout sessions, a keynote speaker and raffle.

Keynote speaker is Jeff Yalden. Yalden is an advocate for mental health in youth and adults, and an authority on teen motivation, teen mental health, and teen suicide prevention and crisis intervention.

Yalden speaks from experience and delivers from the heart, using a no-nonsense approach that leads his audiences to their “aha” defining moments.

Yalden was featured as a celebrity teen and family life coach on MTV’s reality show, MADE. He has appeared in numerous print, radio, podcasts, and television interviews.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
