About the"Why you?" initiative

The “Why You?” Initiative [YU?] is a growing national nonprofit organization established in 2011 to eradicate barriers to students and young professionals’ success by effectively delivering longitudinal support via a fusion of technological and traditional mediums. The organization, with its corporate headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota, provides comprehensive mentoring, academic, social, emotional, and professional support and development services and programs for high school, undergraduate, graduate/professional students, and young professionals in 15 states.

Yearly, we host this conference that we call "confab". The confab offers cutting-edge presentations, posters, developmental workshops and panel discussions on emerging issues and challenges facing minority and/or underrepresented students, parents and communities. Many attendees travel from various states to engage in the confab. The [YU?] Biannual Spring Confab 2019 is Friday, March 29, 2019 -Saturday, March 01, 2019 at the InterContinental Minneapolis - St. Paul Airport Hotel.
