NLCI’s mission is to focus the nation’s attention on the contributions and challenges of young Latinos by advocating for their success and well being through partnerships and programs.
Tweeting allows NLCI to talk and listen to young Latinos. Words have power and we hope to encourage young Latinos to express themselves through our hashtag #younglatinovoices and help us build a strong network of young Latino leaders and opinion makers. We reserve the right to delete any inappropriate tweets.
NLCI Friends and Supporters,
We are quickly moving and approaching the end of the year 2016. We wish all a very Happy Holiday Season!
We are thrilled to welcome our newest member to our 2017 Board of Directors. With her expertise and passion for the education and well-being of children, we are poised to make an even more substantial impact towards advancing the social, economic and status of young Latinos children in our nation. Please welcome, Dr. Ana M. “Cha” Guzmán. Dr. Guzmán is a nationally recognized expert and professional in the field of education in our nation. She has held several Executive positions, as President or Executive Vice President of large community college districts in our nation, including serving as a senior advisor to the Secretary of Education and past Chair of the Presidential Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanic Americans. She resides in San Antonio, Texas.
The National Latino Children’s Institute is a national advocacy, public policy and services organization driven to advancing and serving as a voice for young Latinos in our nation. We touch the lives of many young Latinos and individuals each year through our extensive local and national network of organizations, partners and elected officials from throughout our nation.
We are looking forward to continuing to build on our advocacy and service initiatives over the next year. One of our key initiatives is serving as the national steward organization for El Día de Los Niños in the United States, celebrated on April 30. We will be holding the national celebration in April 2017 in Washington D.C and the event will include a status report on young Latinos in our nation. If you are interested in sponsoring this event, we would like to hear from you. Please contact Olga Aros at nlci.org or at 1-800-948-6605.
Have a great Holiday season!
