CHCI’s extensive convening power connects young Latinos to an influential and expansive network of leaders who are shaping our country’s future by keeping critical Latino issues on the national agenda. Additionally, CHCI helps maintain a pipeline of emerging Latino talent for government entities, corporations, nonprofits and other organizations. More than 3,500 highly accomplished alumni have successfully continued their journey beyond CHCI into the workforce as powerful leaders in the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
