Lambda Theta Phi Selects CHCI as Its National Philanthropy and Service Partner
CHCI and Lambda Theta Phi Sign Historical Agreement
On July 30, CHCI signed a historic agreement with Lambda Theta Phi, affirming its affiliation as the fraternity's national philanthropy and service partner. Lambda Theta Phi is CHCI's first fraternal partner as it seeks to increase college participation and civic engagement among Latinos in the United States.
The agreement includes both a philanthropic and service commitment to support CHCI's high school college readiness programs in Washington, D.C. and throughout the United States. Lambda Theta Phi's national fundraising campaign will aid CHCI's R2L NextGen program, a week-long civic engagement experience for 9th, 10th and 11th grade Latino students to learn about the federal government and explore Washington, DC. Lambda Theta Phi will also support CHCI's Ready to Lead (R2L) college readiness events, held throughout the United States, with undergraduate and alumni volunteers.
"It is an honor to partner with CHCI," said Lambda Theta Phi National President José Grajales after the signing event during CHCI's Congressional Breakfast. "Their efforts to promote empowerment through education align perfectly with Lambda Theta Phi's values of academic excellence and the advancement of the Latino community. We are excited to leverage our network to advance this cause."
“Lambda Theta Phi’s investment in the next generation of Latino leaders will allow CHCI to inspire more young people to become civically engaged and make a difference in their community,” said Esther Aguilera, CHCI president and CEO. “We thank the fraternity for being the first partner of its kind in our history and for their commitment to supporting young Latinos.”
Lambda Theta Phi has cooperated with CHCI's Ready to Lead (R2L) program in the past, providing undergraduate volunteers for program support and alumni volunteers for the program's Mentoring Power Hour. The agreement, signed Wednesday, formalizes and enhances the partnership between the two organizations.
