Introducing the 2012 Líderes Summit Staff Team!
Every summer, the Líderes Initiative prepares a select cohort of young leaders to participate in its Summit Staff Leadership Development Program. Youth ages 18–26 are recruited for an intensive four-day leadership training leading up to the Líderes Summit. Under the direction of the NCLR Líderes Initiative Manager, staff share in the overall execution of the Líderes Summit, working independently and in groups on various aspects of the event. Youth are recruited from throughout the country to ensure the creation of a team that is rich in its diversity of cultural and life experiences.
