Protégés, all rising Latina/o leaders in Ventura County, are matched with mentors serving in leadership positions.The LVLA was established to serve three purposes: develop a leadership pipeline for Latina/o leaders in education; create a mentoring and networking system for participants; provide outreach to P-12 students with the goal of increasing numbers of under-represented students in post baccalaureate programs.

LVLA OUTREACH

4 LVLA PavelThe outreach element of the LVLA is achieved through conference presentations by protégés and Community Action Plans. Cohort 1 protégés (2013-2015) impacted more than 300 Latina/o youth and families through their Community Action Plans, which are implemented in the second year of the two-year program and must include some element of education for youth and/or families about what graduate school is, why diversity in graduate education is essential, what kinds of graduate programs exist and how people apply, get accepted and pay for graduate school.
