Resources for Community Partners

Whether you are a nonprofit, community business, or legislative office, you can encourage students to apply to CLYLP’s programs! The Chicano Latino Youth Leadership Project offers various leadership programs to develop students’ political and cultural awareness, and prepare for college.  Students have a unique opportunity to connect with education, business, political and community leaders, and receive encouragement in their pursuit of post-secondary educational opportunities. After completing a CLYLP program, students join the CLYLP familia, with a robust alumni network that continues providing support throughout their academic and professional careers. We thank you for believing in your students and helping them along their journey of becoming California’s future leaders!
