Latino Nonprofit Leadership Program (LNLP)

UWM's Roberto Hernández Center (RHC), offers the Latino Nonprofit Leadership Program (LNLP), a reflective, practical leadership development course designed especially for bilingual (English/Spanish) Latinos and non-Latinos involved with Latino-serving nonprofit organizations in southeastern Wisconsin, either as employees or as volunteers.

Since 2005, the LNLP has offered more than 152 committed and passionate individuals the opportunity to develop their leadership capacities, sharpen their management skills, create collaborative networks and engage in advocacy on issues important to Latinos. As such, the LNLP has become a vehicle for social change, empowering those who serve southeastern Wisconsin's Latino-serving nonprofits, increasing the leadership capital in our Latino communities and beyond, and ultimately, enhancing the quality of life for the community at large.

The 8-month program includes two overnight retreats (February and June) and 28 class sessions on Wednesdays from 4 to 8 p.m. Class sessions feature guest speakers from the community who share their insights on various topics related to leadership, management, advocacy and other relevant subjects. In addition, participants are matched with a community mentor and challenged to complete a community project that benefits a Latino-serving nonprofit.

The program begins in February with a kickoff retreat and runs through November. The cost for each participant is $400. Payment plans, employer-direct billing, and a limited number of scholarships are available.
