Latino Leadership Council

Advancing the Welleness and Leadership Capacity of Latino Populations

aka LLC   |   AUBURN, CA   |  www.LatinoLeadershipCouncil.org

Mission

Our mission is to advance cultural strength, leadership and well-being within the Latino Community.

Notes from the nonprofit

The Latino Leadership Council is the ONLY regional non-profit focused on the Latino communities and the only one who employs a team of mobile Promotores. Our Promotores visit families at home, in hospitals, at schools, or wherever is convenient to them and we do so during the evenings or weekends so that we can mitigate their transportation barriers and increase their access to services. Because of our Promotores, hundreds of families in the region are linked to existing resources and have learned how to navigate the systems. We serve our community while teaching agencies cultural competence and advocating for and influencing system change. We are proud of the grass-roots work we have done to support families and look forward to watching as they raise their voices, stand by their convictions and own their power.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

While our Promotores will continue to provide intervention and supports for families who need support to access Health, Education and Youth Development services, we are enhancing our LEADERSHIP PROGRAM to ensure that our youth, community and professionals are equipped to navigate systemic barriers and develop the skill set necessary to take leadership roles in their communities.

We have retained the services of a consultant who is helping a team of board and staff members to develop the leadership curriculum and identify the structure necessary to implement this long-term project.

Our executive team and board members have critical lived experience that will lend itself to the development of this program. Additionally, we have cohorts of youth and professionals who have indicated an interest in participating in this program.

We have identified and engaged a leadership development consultant and had one meeting with our staff/board team. Next steps are to flesh out the details, form partnerships, identify participants for the first cohort and gather their input, and implement the program.
