Pioneer Natural Resources and the Victoria Business and Education Coalition (VBEC) hosted the 8th annual YOUth LEADership Conference for incoming seventh graders June 4-8 at Victoria College in South Texas.
This life-changing program, which has expanded to 10 counties, teaches students the importance of staying in school and how to be successful in life through strong leadership skills. One hundred students experienced dynamic speakers, a rock-wall climb, a community service project, a water party, and presentations and demonstrations on leadership. Pioneer provided a $100 scholarship to each participant, covering two-thirds of the $150 conference fee.
