Latino Board Fellowship
The Latino Board Fellowship identifies, supports and places Latinos working within and outside the education sector in New England and Greater Houston onto governing boards of schools and education nonprofit organizations. As a board member, you have an important role to play in addressing educational inequity and influencing better educational outcomes for all children.
Fellows participate in comprehensive training and a rigorous cultivation process to match each Fellow with the most appropriate local organization’s governing Board of Directors. Seminars feature thought-provoking readings and discussions about the state of Latino education, nonprofit governance, and diversity and inclusion.
Due to COVID-19 and it’s unique challenges and opportunities, selected Fellows in 2021 will join a virtual national cohort bringing together participants from across New England and Greater Houston.
