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.

Values

 

Relationships

We build collaborative relationships based on trust and mutual respect.

Personal and community growth

We educate and advocate opportunities to continually grow and develop our skills and promote community wellness.

Integrity
 

We do what we say we will do with honesty, transparency and accountability.

Community pride
 

We treat each other with dignity and cultivate a sense of cultural achievement to benefit the good of the community.

Catalyst for change

 

We continually challenge systems and communities to bring about changes in approaches, perceptions, behaviors and outcomes.
