Attendees at The Boys and Girl’s Clubs’s annual Keystone Youth Conference will have more than just youth empowerment to cheer for. The conference boasts a list of hip-hop artists that sound like a lineup for a concert. Doug E. Fresh, Run D.M.C., Jordin Sparks, B.oB and the OMG Girlz will all make appearances.

The Keystone, held in Atlanta this year March 21 -24 brings together young people from 157 cities around the U.S. to participate in workshops focused on community leadership, financial literacy and college readiness, and provide information about career paths from entertainment to science and network through various social events.

“Boys & Girls Clubs of America believes a critical step to ensuring success for teens is to actively engage them and empower them to lead through initiatives like the Keystone Conference,” said Jim Clark, president and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

Conference attendees are invited via their participation in local Keystone Clubs within the Boys and Girls of America organization. These clubs, for teens 14-18, focus on leadership development, careers, academic achievement and community service. Over 1800 teens will participate in the conference.
