LBLA trains Latinos to volunteer their time in leadership roles as board members of nonprofits in our region. Nonprofit boards should reflect the community they serve and our LBLA addresses the leadership gap in order to better improve the needs of the Latino community in Silicon Valley.
Why is this important?
A study conducted by the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley less than 3% of nonprofits in Silicon Valley have Latinos serving on their nonprofit board. While Latinos greatly under-report their volunteer activity, the LBLA program recruits, trains, and guides Latinos to maximize their impact.
What are the results?
In addition to recruiting, training, and guiding Latinos to maximize their impact as board members, we match them with boards of nonprofit organizations whose missions best match their personal interests.
• Over 360 Senior Fellows have graduated from LBLA
