Application Deadline: December 1st, 2020
Program Date: December 7th - December 11th 

Centro Latino is a nonprofit organization that promotes community and individual development throughout the Pierce, King, and Thurston County areas. A key component of Centro Latino's mission consists of advancing the Latino and Indigenous communities, including young individuals, to become civically engaged as they continue working to make a difference in their communities through both political and non-political processes. As a result of this, Centro Latino's Institute of Public Policy, Education, and Training will develop multiple pipelines of upcoming leaders by opening its program to high school and college students.

Centro Latino's Institute of Public Policy, Education, and Training will provide young individuals in high school and college the tools to create a change in their community. The program is designed to expand beyond the basics of government and the legislative process to teach a culturally competent and responsive curriculum of the inner workings of the state Capitol, stakeholders involved in advocacy, grassroots organizing and the different paths into becoming civically engaged.

Centro Latino is seeking students who have a passion for change. There is no merit, immigration status, volunteer, GPA, or any other specified requirement. If you would like to create impact or learn how to create an impact in your community, Centro Latino wants you!
