The seventh annual Martin Luther King Jr. youth conference, presented by the Community Fellows Program of the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, will be held on February 16 and 17, coinciding with MIT's 22nd annual celebration of the life and legacy of the slain civil rights leader.
The event has been coordinated by Adjunct Professor Melvin H. King, director of the Community Fellows Program. Its theme is Realizing the Dream on Youth Entrepreneurship.
The program will include mini-sessions on principles of entrepreneurship, completing a business plan, and using various software programs and the World Wide Web.
