Latino Leadership Academy

Trenton, NJ— In an unprecedented collaborative partnership, the Institute for Latino Studies (ILS) and the Latino Leadership Alliance of New Jersey (LLANJ) announce the 2018-2019 cohort of the Latino Leadership Academy, an intense 10-month course to train and develop emerging leaders that they may serve the community in a more holistic and independent manner.

Participants in The Academy are selected based on their professional and community involvement background, as well as their commitment to submit to the rigors of intense and demanding leadership development training. The program meets on the second Saturday of the month.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Latino Leadership Alliance and the Institute for Latino Studies, I am pleased to announce that The Latino Leadership Academy Class of 2019 will consist of 40 highly motivated participants who have demonstrated serious commitment to master the fundamentals and advanced principles of leadership,” said Nestor Montilla, Sr., LLANJ President.

“Many public and private sectors employers are active in community leadership roles and are sensitive to the real-world issues, concerns, needs, problems and opportunities endemic to the State of New Jersey and urban centers across the United States,” she said, adding: “The Latino Leadership Academy is an effective medium for employers to ensure the formation of new leaders to address community matters and to help influence/initiate socio-economic and political changes that will have a positive impact on the quality of life and advancement of the State of New Jersey.”

Led by seasoned experts and scholars, seminars are held at field related sites across the state, and favor a practicum approach to training.

Topics covered by the course include Latino History and Contribution to United States, Government, Leadership Styles, Values & Ethics in Public Service, Education, A two-party System, Criminal Justice, Health, Social Services & Economic Development, Public Speaking and Media, and a special session on Running a Political Campaign.

Program coordinators indicated that all participants are given public-speaking roles throughout the year; are strategically advised on awareness of key community issues, concerns, needs and opportunities involving those in leadership roles; and are motivated to take on leadership roles in the public, private and nonprofit sectors in order to influence actions that will have a positive impact on the community as a whole.

“Participants of the Latino Leadership Academy acquire theoretical knowledge, as well as hands-on experience,” said President Montilla.  “The program is intense by design to simulate the rigors and challenges of actual leadership. It helps participants develop, improve poise, and confidence in their leadership role.”

Remarks by LLANJ President Nestor Montilla, Sr. endorsing Bob Hugin for US Senate

Saludos! We are here to announce the endorsement of the Latino Leadership Alliance’s Political Action Committee of Bob Hugin for United States Senate.   

The LLA-PAC endorses candidates who are committed to work with the Latino Leadership Alliance on issues impacting Latinos in New Jersey and across the United States. The LLA-PAC does not support candidates based on party affiliation, ethnicity, gender or religious beliefs. Its record of endorsements is a testament to that, as it shows endorsements of Democrats and Republicans alike for the governor’s office, including: McGreevey, Corzine, Christie, and current governor Murphy. 

The LLA-PAC endorses candidates strictly on their position on issues, on trust, and their track record of doing their best for the people they represent or would like to represent. We also take into serious consideration their record of promoting and bringing fairness, respect and inclusion at all levels of government…

Mr. Hugin impressed us as a refreshing, self-assured, political outsider whose independence and lack of political debt, make him free to pursue his own agenda, not beholden to a party or special interest. He emphasized his independence as a thinker and doer, who is willing and capable of working with both parties to put New Jersey and the country first…MORE
