 Hmong Youth to Gather
At UW-Eau Claire 

MAILED: July 17, 2002

         EAU CLAIRE  Fifty Hmong youth will work on their English writing, computer, science and Hmong language skills during a two-week leadership program this month at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
         Hmong youth in grades 7-10 from throughout Wisconsin will meet on the UW-Eau Claire campus for the "Hmong Youth Leadership: Pre-college Program" July 22-Aug. 4.
         Participants will develop their English grammar skills by learning and writing about Hmong leaders. They also will learn about leadership qualities by reading Hmong literature, interacting with instructors and listening to guest speakers.
         The program also introduces participants to a college environment, and allows them to interact with UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students.
