Interested in making a lasting impact in the community? Do you enjoy working with youth? How about sharing your professional and personal advice to high school students?

Edu-Futuro is looking for mentors and one-time volunteers for our Emerging Leader's Program: Part I (ELPI) and would love your help! Mentors and volunteers are utilized to inspire our students and guide them in pursuing a college education, taking pride in their cultural identity, and becoming leaders in their communities. They leave lasting impressions on our students and are essential to the success of our program.

The Emerging Leaders Program is a multi-workshop program that focuses on leadership development, college preparation, and community involvement for Latino and other immigrant youth in grades 9 through 12. Mentors will provide their assigned student "crews" with valuable advice in areas such as public speaking, goal setting, advocacy, and career planning. Mentors are young and reliable professionals in the northern Virginia, Maryland, and DC area looking to empower and inspire youth in their own communities.

Our Fall ELPI session will take place from November 5,2016 to December 17, 2016.Mentors are asked to commit to workshops on Saturdays (9:30am - 12:00pm)but there are other events that may require full-day participation (such as college visits). We will have workshops in four different locations this year: Arlington, Springfield, Falls Church, and Fairfax. The exact location of each site is listed in the application.If you are interested in becoming a mentor, please fill out the application at www.tinyurl.com/mentorfall2016. Applications will be due on Sunday, October 23.

If you're interested in volunteering with us but cannot commit on a weekly basis, consider becoming a one-time volunteer! One-time volunteers play an important role in many of our workshops. Positions include being part of a career panel or a judge for our speech competition. An extensive list of opportunities are listed in the application. Please keep in mind that all one-time volunteer opportunities will be during weekdays. If you're interested, fill out the application at www.tinyurl.com/volunteerfall-2016.
