LLT launches "Paths to Success" series.
Stay-at-home orders and school districts moving to on-line learning during a global pandemic, prompted Latinas Leading Tomorrow (LLT) to design a virtual approach that would stay true
to its mission while maintaining some engagement with students this summer. LLT has
designed a video series for Latina students, ages 13-18 featuring influencers, trailblazers and successful professional Latinas as they share their steps, struggles and triumphs in their personal
and professional journeys. Our first session held in June, featured LLT Board member, Teresa
Ramirez, Ph.d. who appeared on Zoom® and Facebook® Live and shared stories and photos
on her journey from high school in Compton, CA to graduating with a doctorate degree from
The next session is scheduled for Tuesday, August 4th at 5:30pm EST - “Entrepreneurship: A conversation with mother and daughter”. Join LLT for a panel discussion from a mother and daughter duo who have had much success in real estate and entrepreneurship. Listen to how each business phenom got started, where they gained their strength and courage, and the benefits of leaning on one another to succeed despite the odds!

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.
