Overview

Mission Statement

Our mission is to develop, place and connect essential Latino leaders in the education sector.

Background Statement

Latinos for Education is national nonprofit based in Boston with a mission to develop, place and connect essential Latino leadership in the education sector. We are the first and only organization mobilizing a network of skilled Latino education leaders who ensure the voice of Latino students and families is heard and factored into decision-making in schools, communities and education institutions throughout the U.S. We deeply believe that meaningful representation matters. With more Latinos in positions of influence, Latino children are more likely to achieve their full potential in the classroom and in life.

Impact Statement

We piloted our two flagship programs, the Latino Board Fellowship and the Aspiring Latino Leaders Fellowship, last year in Boston with a total of 29 Fellows. Of the 19 Aspiring Latino Leaders Fellows from the 2017 cohort, 58% received a promotion or gained admittance to a masters or PhD program during or immediately following the Fellowship. This summer, we selected 25 Latino leaders to join our 2018 cohort and programming will begin in September.
Through the 2017 and 2018 cohorts of the Latino Board Fellowship, 18 Greater Boston education organizations have stronger Latino representation on their boards of directors.

Needs Statement

Latinos for Education's work depends on the generosity of philanthropic individuals and organizations. We seek additional funding to strengthen our current programs and add team capacity to ensure our Latino children and families have access to a high-quality education.

Programs

Aspiring Latino Leaders Fellowship

The Aspiring Latino Leaders Fellowship accelerates the trajectory of Latinos in education by providing access to strong networks and skill-building focused on identity development, advocacy, and management competencies. The cohort-based fellowship takes place during the academic year and, through retreats and monthly sessions, Fellows increase self-efficacy around the following professional competencies: strategic talent management, program management, civic engagement and public policy, impact evaluation of educational programs, and personal leadership development. Boston-area Latino education leaders benefit from the fellowship by increasing their skills and networks to better advocate for Latino students and families.

Latino Board Fellowship

The Latino Board Fellowship identifies, trains, and places Latinos working successfully outside and inside education onto governing boards of education nonprofits and charter schools. Fellows are trained, through monthly sessions January - June, in issues of good governance, building diverse boards, improving board effectiveness/efficacy, and making positive contributions to partner organizations. Our impact with these partners is long-lasting by helping partners build capacity in inclusive and equitable practices up front. We immediately increase the diversity of their boards by matching them with a Fellow who becomes a governing board member.

Impact

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

--

2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

--

3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

--

4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

--

5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
