The 15-year-old Youth Awards program is the beginning of HHF’s award-winning Leadership Cycle, as Youth Awardees and other students are tracked, prepared and positioned through the Latinos On Fast Track (LOFT) program as they transition from high school, to college and graduate school, and well into their careers. Through LOFT, tens of thousands of vetted students and young professionals are connected to each other and experts in their fields; participate in leadership trainings, industry-tailored symposia and workshops; and hundreds are placed into internships, mentorships, fellowships and full-time positions with Fortune 500 companies and government agencies.
The Hispanic Heritage Foundation is a national nonprofit organization which inspires, identifies, prepares and positions Latino leaders for classroom, community and workforce to meet America’s priorities. HHF has offices in Washington, DC, Los Angeles, New York and Michigan State University, which houses the LOFT Institute. HHF also promotes Latino cultural pride, accomplishment, and the great promise of the community through public awareness campaigns seen by millions. Visit www.HispanicHeritage.org.
