The Omega Educational Foundation recently held their 17th annual Youth Leadership Conference at Compton College. The program, founded by Ricky Lewis of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., strives to have a positive impact on the lives of young African American men ages 8-18 by providing them with effective mentorship, leadership, and fellowship. More than 300 young men registered for the event and many parents also took advantage of the free conference activities tailored specifically towards adults, which addressed issues that impact their sons each day.
