CHCI is excited to announce the launch of the 2013 High School Latino Leaders in D.C. (HSLLDC) program. From now through Monday, April 8, high school leaders from specific cities can submit their applications to this wonderful and exciting summer program.

We’d love to bring high school students from your community to D.C., but we need your help to fund this important program. Since the HSLLDC program is made possible at no cost to our student participants, applicants are only sought from regions where CHCI has dedicated financial support.
If you are interested in having individuals from your community participate in this program, please contact Lori Crowe at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are willing to work collaboratively to identify partners, businesses, or foundations in your local community that may be interested in sponsoring future Latino leaders.
