Ralph P. Malone Youth Motivation Task Force Conference
Celebrating Our 50th Anniversary
April 12-14, 2016
Fort Valley State University’s Office of Career and Alumni Services hosts an annual conference designed to motivate young people to take charge of their lives and travel the path of success.
The conference was launched in 1967 by Ralph P. Malone, FVSU’s former director of Career Placement, with the assistance of the National Urban League. The event, led by a group of successful business mentors and FVSU alums, is meant to inspire young people to pursue professional careers. Malone passed away in 1988. Four years,the event was later renamed the Ralph P. Malone Youth Motivation Task Force in his honor.
During the conference, entrepreneurs, professors and business owners visit FVSU and Peach County High School classrooms to dispense advice about how they succeeded in the business world.
The highlight of the event is the special assembly program held in the C.W. Pettigrew Center.
