The Fellowship experience is at the core of the LLI’s mission. Each cohort is designed to have a blend of industries that affords Fellows a profound opportunity to learn from one another and expand their networks outside of their individual industries.

Public officials, corporate executives, small business owners, and non-profit leaders from across Colorado have comprised our Fellowship classes. Though the minimum requirement is seven years of professional experience, LLI Fellows average about 15 years and have demonstrated career success. The comprehensive profile of our 60 Fellows and Alumni is described below.



Social Impact Projects: Working in small groups, Fellows complete uniquely designed Social Impact Projects that achieve a collective goal of changing the narrative on the Latino community. Fellows develop, manage, and execute a Strategic Plan to address a community need.

Mentorship: The LLI is anchored by an extraordinary mentorship program that pairs Fellows with some of Colorado’s highest-ranking political, business, and non-profit leaders. Fellows receive instruction on developing and managing successful mentorships and setup multiple meetings with their mentors during the Fellowship.

Special Events: LLI brings local and national leaders to share their personal success stories. Additionally, the Institute hosts special events throughout the year that include symposiums, documentary film screenings, and panels, all centered on issues that impact Latinos in Colorado.
