2013 Combined Federal Campaign Kickoff
The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) is proud to announce our participation in the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC)—a fundraising program run by the Office of Personnel Management that allows federal, military, and postal employees to join philanthropic efforts quickly and efficiently.
If you're a federal employee, please consider supporting CHCI through the CFC. Your participation will allow CHCI to expand its resources to grow our programs and further develop the next generation of Latino leaders. The CHCI CFC identification number is #30620.
With its comprehensive approach to leadership development, CHCI directly impacts the lives of nearly 1,600 students and young professionals each year through its fellowships, congressional internships, scholarships, Ready to Lead (R2L®) college readiness program, and R2L NextGen program.
By promoting education attainment and college access, providing unmatched career development experience, and offering award-winning leadership programs that connect program participants to a powerful network of U.S. leaders, CHCI’s mission is unwavering and more powerful and critical than ever before in our nation’s history.
CHCI programs have helped change the face of Washington, D.C. by creating a pipeline of Latino talent and opening the halls of Congress for Latino students to intern and work in government and policy. CHCI offers paid 2-3 month internships and 9-month fellowships for Latino students and college graduates from across the country. The majority of fellows and interns are first generation to go to college and from families with incomes under $45,000.
In a nation where one in three children are Latino and more than 90 percent of Latino children are native born, success must include prepared Latino leaders. CHCI’s effort to develop Latino leaders directly impacts the future workforce and our nation’s ability to meet the workforce challenges of the 21st century.
