WASHINGTON - The National Hispana Leadership Institute (NHLI) announced its opening of the 2013 Latinas Learning to Lead application process.
The Latinas Learning to Lead program is a one week program targeted to college-enrolled Latinas between the ages 18 to 24. Participants are selected based on their community service record, their professional and personal accomplishments, and dedication to serving their community.
NHLI’s annual Latinas Learning to Lead Program promotes and fosters the development of young Latina leaders through training, mentoring opportunities, access to national networks and tools to create a community impact through their leadership projects.
Some session topics will include effective communication and presentation skills, advocacy training, public policy issues affecting the Latino community, and other professional and leadership development topics.
An exciting new component has been added to the program. Each fellow will shadow an Executive Leadership Program alum for a day. This will allow each fellow to receive mentoring and career development experience.
The program application closes on May 24, 2013 at 5 pm EST.
