Young Latino Leaders Summit Series

PARTNER—$20,000

Each year, CHCI Graduate Fellows engage in a public policy research project that culminates in the Young Latino Leaders Summit Series, where each fellow leads a public policy roundtable discussion in their areas of focus: education, health, housing, law, or STEM.  These discussions are held on Capitol Hill, where members of Congress, Congressional staffers, public policy experts, and other interested individuals are invited to attend.

Sole sponsorships in the public policy area of the sponsor’s choice offer the following benefits:

  • Signage at the summit venue
  • Opportunity to make two-minute opening remarks and introduce summit participants
  • Company listing on GFP website
  • Company logo in program and signage as summit sponsor
