Both organizations will also collaborate on networking and career development events for students, alumni of their programs, and other young professionals in Washington and throughout the country.
“As the Hispanic community continues to grow, so does the demand for leadership development opportunities for young, talented Latinos eager be the next generation of American leaders,” said Domenika Lynch, President and CEO of CHCI. “I am proud to announce this important partnership with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, who shares with CHCI a vision of a prosperous America through educating and empowering Latino youth.”
“We are thrilled to join forces with CHCI which has been developing influential Latino leaders for many years,” said Jose Antonio Tijerino, President and CEO of HHF. “We look forward to adding new elements as we help prepare our youth to move the Latino community forward. By combining our outreach, programs and networks, our collective impact will be even greater”
