Latino Network: Let your voice be heard! Apply for Academia de Lideres

Let your voice be heard!

At Latino Network, we know the importance of cultivating leaders to guide change at the local level. Academia de Líderes (Leaders Academy) works with Portland’s emerging Latino leaders to build leadership skills, organizing capabilities, and capacity to engage in City governance and have our voice heard.

Part of the Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvement Diversity and Civic Leadership (DCL) Program, this program aims to increase equity in community involvement by engaging Latinos in the governance of the City.

Trainings Focus On:

  • Systems of oppression
  • Leadership skills
  • Conflict resolution
  • Gender, economic, environmental and social justice
  • Civic engagement
  • Community organizing

The first session will be January 27th. Selected members will meet once monthly for 6 months, on Saturdays between 9 am and 3 pm. We provide breakfast, lunch, and childcare. Meetings are usually conducted in Spanish. Workshop trainers and experts in their fields give participants the opportunity to learn firsthand from those with leadership experience. Each session, the Líderes choose an issue for advocacy.

Apply today!

Applications are currently being accepted. If you are interested, please contact Raul Preciado Mendez via email (raul@latnet.org) or call (503-847-0980).

About the Organization

We are a Latino-led education organization, grounded in culturally-specific practices and services, that lifts up youth and families to reach their full potential. Our work springs from the core belief in Latino community self-determination—that is, the ability of community members to participate meaningfully in the decisions that affect their lives and the lives of their families.

About the Volunteer Opportunities Newsletter

The Volunteer Opportunities Newsletter allows students, faculty, and staff at PCC a more comprehensive look at volunteer needs and opportunities from our community partners. Our hope is that the newsletter will allow subscribers to stay better informed about community service opportunities in the tri-county areas of Portland, Oregon, as well as non-profit internships and scholarships available locally and nationally.
