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 ELLOS Program is a gender-specific leadership program which brings together Latino adults with Latino high school youth. This program encourages leadership, action, and service among young Hispanic men.
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.
Our purpose: Development and encouragement
By providing teenagers with leadership and educational resources, students increase knowledge and expand their awareness of the common challenges and opportunities before them.
