The Fellowship includes:

  1. One week training at the prestigious Leadership Development Program at CCL. Fellows choose when they attend to give them maximum exposure to corporate training. Click here for more information on CCL’s Leadership Development Program.
  2. Preparation of an individual report on the CCL experience to include:
    • Lessons learned from the training (personal development)
    • The contributions of a mainstream and corporate program (What is unique and different from community programs?)
    • The leadership gap: (What is different about Latinos programs? What contributions can Latino programs make to mainstream leadership?)
    • What aspects of the CCL training can and should be incorporated into community programs?
  3. Continued training and contribution
    The Fellows meet 2 to 3 times virtually to share learning and integrate the reports they submitted. They work on a presentation that incorporates key aspects of the CCL training into Latino programs.
  4. A Latino Leadership Scholar would assist with integrating their reports and recommendations and preparing a presentation for the Annual LIDERAMOS Symposium.
