The Latino Board Fellowship is a leadership development program, which culminates with matching each Fellow to the board of an education organization where their skill-sets contribute in tangible, mission-driven ways. After matches are announced in June 2020, a three to six-month cultivation process begins. Fellows and partner organizations follow a protocol to evaluate mutual fit. 

Fellows commit to: 

  • attend all sessions including one full day Saturday launch session, five in-person evening sessions, and two webinars;
  • be open to learning how to be an effective board member and using tools and resources related to best governance practice;
  • participate actively in the program, collaborating with fellows around issues of good governance, diverse boards, improving board effectiveness, and making positive contributions to boards; and
  • engage actively in the board matching and cultivation process.


  • The training, supports and connections to influencers you need to make an impact
  • Personalized experience alongside a cohort of exceptional leaders
  • Access to professional development and roles through the Latinos for Education Talent Hub
  • Ongoing support as alumni of Latinos for Education programming


The Latino Board Fellowship is free for program participants.


Over the past three years, we have matched fellows in Greater Boston and Houston. Learn more about our cohorts of Fellows.
