Latinas Leading Tomorrow hosts a virtual "Open House"
On Tuesday, August 25th 2020, over 20 community members met via Zoom for our Virtual Volunteer Open House. The meeting was hosted by the LLT Board of Directors with an agenda that highlighted LLT’s history and mission and description of their programs. Open House participants witnessed the impact of LLT via a short video testimonial from LLT's program alumni on how LLT has helped them in preparing them for college readiness and a better outlook on their career journeys. Now more than ever, LLT needs volunteers with all levels of time commitment to further advance our mission and rethink our programming and strategies. Since the pandemic, our footprint in our middle and high schools have pivoted into remote engagement affecting our entire community - especially the girls our mission serves.
Multiple volunteer opportunities exist throughout the year including Board positions and various committees, such as Communications, Program Development, Strategic Partnerships, Madrina/Speakers/Volunteers, and Fundraising.

Congratulations to the LLT Class of 2020!
This time of year is when LLT volunteers, LLT C.O.R.E. coordinators, Madrinas and Board members get an opportunity to congratulate and honor our LLT high school graduates. The spring semester has proven to be a test of resilience, patience and integrity for the Class of 2020. Listed are the higher ed institutions where our LLT graduates will be attending in the fall. Below is a link on Facebook to a video that the Board of Directors created to share a message of praise and encouragement. We are so proud of our LLT graduates!
LLT starts 2020 with an alumni reunion!
In late January, Latinas Leading Tomorrow hosted a reunion luncheon on the main campus of Georgetown University in Washington, DC to welcome LLT alumni to meet with LLT supporters and Board members to catch up and share their latest personal and professional experiences.
It is LLT's hope to develop a separate group made up of LLT alumni and serve as an extension of LLT's mission and connect Madrinas with LLT alum who are recent college graduates, post grads and young professionals just starting their careers.
