At a time when Cleveland hopes to expand and retain its pool of local talented leaders, Esperanza is promoting a program that encourages leadership, action and service among young Hispanic women and men. The ELLA (Esperanza’s Latina Leadership Alliance) and ELLOS (Esperanza’s Latino Leaders for an Outstanding Society) programs are gender-specific leadership opportunities which bring together the Latina and Latino adult leaders with Hispanic high school youth.
Esperanza’s leadership clubs provide at-risk, inner-city Hispanic youth with a positive alternative to gangs, violence, and dropping out of school. It creates a nurturing peer supported environment for Hispanics of high school age and encourages them to stay in school and develop their leadership skills.
Esperanza, Inc. is seeking committed and open-minded professional individuals who are willing to guide & advise, and have fun with students between the grades of 6th - 12th during the 2016-2017 academic year.
The time commitment for the opportunity is 4 hours per month, September-May. Pre-scheduled sessions throughout the year: Tuesday ELLA, Wednesday ELLOS.
