IMSC
Iu-Mien Student Conference Committee

Mission
The conference has a three-fold mission: to (1) empower youth to pursue higher education and/or explore career opportunities, (2) educate youth on the importance of preserving ethnic culture, and (3) inspire youth to become community leaders.

Purpose
The Iu-Mien Student Conference (IMSC) is a one-day conference providing Iu-Mien high school and middle school students with motivational guest speakers and interactive workshops that help them understand the importance of completing high school, going on to college, and embracing their cultural identity. Held on a college campus, it offers the students a vision of what their lives can be. In the last 15 years, IMSC has positively impacted the lives of over 10,000 youth. An estimated 3,000 former Iu-Mien student participants have gone on to college, expressed a heightened sense of pride in their ethnicity, and returned to IMSC as volunteers and/or planning committee members to demonstrate their commitment to the community.

Impact/Reflections from Volunteer

Steven Tran, IMSC 15 Volunteer

"The opportunity to lecture as a facilitator at this event was certainly a humbling experience. As a non-profit organization, each individual within the conference room has the same passion for educating and preserving the Mien cultural heritage. As a professional development facilitator, my job was only to inform students of a general preparative plan for college since I am not of the Mien ethnicity. However, as a child from a family of Chinese immigrants, my similar personal experience and knowledge allowed me to relate to these students wholeheartedly. Ultimately, I was able to rectify their uncertainties for college and share my upbringing within an underprivileged family. I was able to share my personal motivation for pursuing medicine in hope of inspiring them to guide the next generation as well."
