LatinXcellence Leadership Program
The LatinXcellence Leadership Program is a 5-week, leadership development experience for Latinx emerging leaders aimed at empowering the Latinx students of SUNY Westchester Community College, by providing them with a safe space for individual growth and the formation of relationships among fellow Latinx student leaders. This program is based on Dr. Yosso’s Cultural Wealth model and through it, Latinx students will enhance professional skills, build an understanding of various Latinx cultures, and learn how to pivot leadership potential towards action. Through these efforts, the LatinXcellence Leadership Program hopes to equip Latinx students with the tools necessary to be successful leaders and maximize the endless opportunities available to them throughout college and beyond.
Here is what a past member of the LatinXcellence Leadership Program had to say about this experience:
“LatinXcellence was the leadership development program that I didn’t know I needed. I can’t express enough how invaluable it was to connect and grow with other Latinx student leaders. Through this program, I was able to reconnect with my roots and tap into skills and strengths that had been buried away. I left the program with a deep sense of pride and a desire to showcase my talents.” – Vanessa G., FA 2020 LatinXcellent Leader
