Leadership Development

More Latinos in the Board Room

Currently, fewer than 3% of Latinos serve on nonprofit boards in Silicon Valley. We see that as an urgent call to action. Our Latino Board Leadership Academy recruits, trains and guides Latinos to serve on local boards—an essential step to ensuring that invaluable and underrepresented voices are heard.

Join our Latino Board Leadership Academy!

If you are a Latino professional interested in making a difference in Silicon Valley and you have considered supporting a nonprofit organization with your talents, the Latino Board Leadership Academy (LBLA) may be for you!

  • LBLA is a 10-week hybrid program where you will learn the foundational skills needed to succeed as a nonprofit board member.
  • You will learn about various nonprofit organizations seeking to diversify and enhance representation of the community on their board.
  • You will join a network of over 600 committed fellows and will have the opportunity to participate in alumni events.
Applications for our last class of 2023 are closed. To be the one to know when our next application opens, fill out the inquiry form here.

Board Match Night

Are you a nonprofit seeking help with recruiting board members? LBLA Board Match Night is an opportunity for representatives from nonprofits to meet LBLA fellows who are eager to serve on a nonprofit board. It’s a great opportunity to learn about each other and evaluate a potential fit.
