The Aspiring Latino Leaders Fellowship is an 8-month program that supports Latino education leaders in the Greater Boston area. This program focuses on long-term support for Latino education leaders with an emphasis on identity-development. Fellows will explore their leadership through capacity building sessions designed to increase self-efficacy in the following areas:
- Understanding the individual and collective Latino identity and it’s influence over their professional path
- Management within the organizational / institutional context
- Leading Change / Collective Impact with Latino communities
- Mapping and advancing careers within the education sector
We are seeking aspiring Latino education leaders between the ages of 26-35 years old who represent the educational sector broadly. Our goal is to create an ecosystem of Latino education leaders who may not typically have opportunities to work together toward a common goal of educational equity.
We encourage applicants to apply with work experience in any of the following areas:
- traditional and charter public education

- policy and advocacy
- education social ventures
- other organizations that serve Latino children in the Greater Boston area
