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.
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!
The Latino Board Leadership Academy will host two cohorts in 2024:
Class XXVI applications open on March 1, 2024 and close on March 22, 2024. Class XXVI takes place from April 3, 2024 to June 5, 2024.
Class XXVII applications open on July 1, 2024 and close on July 19, 2024. Class XXVII will take place from July 31, 2024 to October 2, 2024.
Are you a nonprofit seeking help with recruiting board members? LBLA Board Match Night is an opportunity for representatives from nonprofits to meet qualified 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.
The next Board Match Nights will take place on May 29, 2024 from 5:30pm – 8pm and September 25, 2024 from 5:30pm – 8pm in-person in Santa Clara, CA.
