There is a growing crisis related to next-generation leadership and leadership transition among its member organizations - an issue mirrored throughout the nonprofit sector. NALCAB is addressing the need for next-generation leadership by:
- Developing a formal national network of next generation Latino leaders in community development/ asset building;
- Providing training to these next generation leaders;
- Helping to match capable Latino asset builders currently in the workforce with positions available with member organizations; and
- Creating internship opportunities for college students and fellowship opportunities for post-graduates who are interested in becoming asset building practitioners.
NALCAB seeks to invest in the next generation of Latino leaders through its:
