Emerging Latino Leaders Program – May 6

Posted by Coors Light on March 26, 2019

Coors Light Accepting Nominations for Emerging Latino Leaders Program

Since 2006, the Coors Light Líderes Program has supported, honored, and highlighted up-and-coming Latino leaders for their achievements, vision, and commitment to their communities.

Through the program, a single grant of $25,000 will be awarded to an emerging Latino leader and an affiliated nonprofit with a program or project that benefits the Hispanic community. To be considered for the award, the individual must be actively engaged in initiatives that involve leadership development, education, environmental stewardship, economic development, volunteerism, or mentoring.

Eligible candidates must be between the age of 21 and 39, of Hispanic descent, and be associated with a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, either as a staff member or as a volunteer.

In addition, the nominee’s affiliate nonprofit must be committed to ethical business and social practices, have a project or program that benefits the Hispanic community (or be willing to augment existing work to meet program guidelines), have programs that focus on persons age 21 and older, and not be exclusively focused on an advocacy issue such as immigration, civic participation, or voter mobilization.

Any nonprofit or member of the public can nominate a leader. (The nonprofit organization with which the nominee is affiliated must approve/support the nomination.)

See the Coors Light Líderes Program website for complete program guidelines and nomination instructions.

Deadline: May 6, 2019
