NALEO Educational Fund-NYC
The NALEO Educational Fund is the leading organization that empowers the Latino community to participate fully in the American political process, from citizenship to public service.
The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund was established in 1981 to empower Latinos to participate fully in the American political process. The NALEO Educational Fund carries out this mission by developing and implementing programs that promote the integration of Latino immigrants into American society, developing future leaders among Latino youth, providing assistance and training to the nation’s Latino elected and appointed officials, and conducting research on issues important to the Latino population. The NALEO Educational Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization governed by a 15 member Board of Directors and a 25 member Board of Advisors. Both Boards are comprised of Members of Congress, and state and local elected officials. The NALEO Educational Fund Board of Directors also includes members of the private sector. Headquartered in Los Angeles, the NALEO Educational Fund maintains offices in Washington, D.C., Houston, Orlando, and New York City.
