May-30-06 DCA Kicks-Off 2006 Hispanic Interns in Community Service Program and Latino Leaders Fellowship Institute
“This program provides important experience and training for young people in the Hispanic Community,” said DCA Commissioner Susan Bass Levin. “These skills will help them to develop into our future business, political, and community leaders.”
The Hispanic Interns in Community Service Program and Latino Leaders Fellowship Institute is a ten-week summer program geared toward leadership and professional development. The program, begun in 1988, offers Hispanic college students the opportunity to work in a government, corporate or non-profit setting and participate in leadership training conducted by Rutgers University’s Center for Strategic Urban Community Leadership.
The Latino Leaders Fellowship Institute equips the interns participating in the Hispanic Interns in Community Service Program with skills essential to executive leadership. Interns learn to assess their own leadership styles and communication skills. Interns are required to complete an individual course project throughout the ten-week program. This year’s class has 34 participants.
