OUR MISSION

Our mission at the VLI is to inspire you and help prepare you for success by helping establish your role as part of the next generation of Latino leaders.

Every generation goes through a series of defining moments. For millions of young Latinos striving to make a better life for themselves and their families, now is one of those moments.

LEADERSHIP

Leadership comes in many forms – community leadership, public service, civic engagement, etc. – but it all starts with caring about your community and getting involved. It is about using your platform and your voice for the advancement of those around you. The VLI encourages you to get involved. Find your talent, strive for excellence, stay focused, stay disciplined and above all else, use your voice for good.

Whether you are a Dreamer, or a second- or third-generation American,
remember – you are not only here to stay, you are here to lead.
