What is Adelante's Leadership Institute?
In it's 14th Year!!! - The ¡Adelante! Annual Leadership Institute & Recruitment Expo is an intense, three-day “eye-opening” and “Aha! Moment” event that entails workshops, great conversations, and hands-on activities conducted by corporate, motivational, and educational leaders – all designed to inform, empower, and motivate Latino college students.
Students network with professionals in a variety of fields, many of whom offer internship and employment opportunities, plus endless advice on the importance of effectively planning and preparing for the corporate job market.
When the conference ends, student participants will return to their campuses enthusiastic about their futures, determined to seek out solutions to better prepare themselves, and with more self-confidence in their abilities to assume leadership roles in their communities.
What makes us unique…
Our Leadership Institute’s presentations are made by some of the country’s top corporate representatives and organizational leaders. Speakers give step-by-step tips on how to prepare and learn critical steps needed for the corporate job market. Speakers also serve as connectors to their respective companies for students who are seeking internship and employment opportunities.
What students walk away with…
Knowledge – loads of the do’s and don’ts in preparing for an interview, the unspoken rules of the workplace, the importance of networking with the “right” people, and the significance of taking advantage of meaningful internships that will ultimately provide the edge in landing great employment opportunities.
Empowerment – students will gain personal leadership skills through teamwork in our Outdoor Challenge Leadership Course, as well as crafting the perfect resume, acing the interview, and learn how different leadership styles can be successful in any environment.
Motivation - our entire conference is geared to challenging students to reach their full potential, mentally and physically. Our event will demonstrate to students that are truly in the driver’s seat on their own path to success.
