The Latino Leadership Council is founded on the principles of advocacy, leadership and systemic change.

Advocacy

We walk alongside the families we serve and model advocacy for them so they can become their family’s best advocate.


Leadership

We embrace leadership with our program participants who find their voices, and in doing so, help others.

 

We also embrace leadership with our promotores. With every family they manage, the promotores gain insights, sow compassion and develop organizational, communication and leadership skills that are integral to their careers as doctors, teachers, social workers or elected officials. 


Systemic change
Our promotores interact with systems and agencies. We provide crucial support to promote change and transform policy and systems to help our communities thrive. 

Mission

Our mission is to advance cultural strength, leadership

and well-being within the Latino Community.
