Mission Statement

To Give Entrepreneurs Alternatives for Life Preparation and Life-long Learning by Developing and Implementing Initiatives and Educational Campaigns to Awaken and Nurture their Entrepreneurial Spirit with the focus of Mentoring students from the California State University System and serving as a Bridge to connect the Corporate and Student Community.



In 2003, the Regional Hispanic Chamber of Commerce developed its educational support component, the Regional Hispanic Institute (RHI). As a 501c-3 tax-exempt organization, the RHI is able to provide its community with educational opportunities that is illustrated in its mission. The RHI stands as one preeminent organization.

Since its inception, the RHI’s guiding precept and goal was to galvanize and unify the ever- growing community of Latino Leaders in California. The RHI also seeks to harness the skills, education and resources of Latino Leaders to assist the next generation of leaders.

As we continue our work to increase the visibility of Latinos and promote an image of diverse professionalism, it’s encouraging to see the economic, political, educational and social contributions of Latinos being recognized in Southern California and across the nation.

Regional Mentorship & Internship Program

The Regional Hispanic Institute Lideres Mentorship and Internship program is a Regional program created to increase opportunities for Youth that will maximize their influence as leaders in the Southern California Region.

We aim to support and nurture young leadership across all sectors of society. We seek to Develop Future Generations of Professionals, Corporate Executives, and Community Leaders. The RHI is focused on making stronger connections and linking young Leaders with high-ranking officers in a wide-variety of business fields.

The intent is to allow students to gain valuable insight into what it takes to be successful and begin building a strong network. The RHI brings together business enterprises and students to benefit both sides. The RHI will reach out to students, recruit them for the mentorship and internship program, and work with the CBA student clubs.

For both students and businesses to benefit, mentorships and internships must be meaningful. We expect that students will perform work that helps the organizations achieve goals, and this will allow the students to learn and grow in the process.

The RHCC will connect with participating business to make sure Mentorships and Internship assignments are appropriate, achievable, and useful. The RHI will organize, manage, and monitor the operation of the program, student interns, and participating businesses.
