Description: ELP I is comprised of workshops focused on leadership development, college preparation, and community involvement for Latino and other immigrant youth (grades 9 through 12). Mentors are young professionals who provide Leaders with valuable guidance and advice in areas such as public speaking, goal setting, and career planning. Each mentor is responsible for a group of 3-6 Leaders.  Each mentor/Leader group is called a “Crew.”

Mentors must be highly reliable; they will report to the ELP Facilitators and are responsible for keeping in touch with their Crew throughout the week while the program is in session. Throughout the program, mentors will join Leaders in a university visit, assist them as they apply for the program’s scholarship, advise them as they develop an action plan to solve any obstacle to their personal success and serve as role models to our youth.

As a Career Panelist, you will volunteer for one evening. The first half of the evening is set up as a panel discussion. Panelists share their stories and career path with the entire group and respond to questions that the students might have. For the second half, students are divided into small groups and the panelists separate. The student groups rotate among the individual panelists so that each student gets a chance to speak with each panelist on a more personal level.

As a Scholarship Committee Member, you will be responsible for working with the other committee members to determine the winners of the Emerging Leaders Program Scholarship. On the Sunday before the scholarship competition, Committee Members will meet with their site's facilitator for an orientation on the competition and to review student scholarship applications. Then, the night of the competition, the Committee will come together on site to interview applicants. The Committee will then come to a consensus as to who will receive the scholarship award before they leave the program site at the end of the evening. The scholarship winners will be announced at the graduation ceremony.
