We are proud to introduce the 2022 HOPE College Leadership Program Scholars. HCLP will train 98 Latina leaders from across the country with students representing 11 key states like Texas, Colorado, Florida, and Arizona. These first-generation young leaders are from diverse backgrounds and varying interests and career goals. We commend them for investing in their personal and career development. HCLP Scholars will spend four months building social capital, developing their political voice, and enhancing their soft skills to prepare them for today's workforce. The 2022 cohorts will join a network of hundreds of HOPE alumnae committed to improving political and economic parity for all communities and increasing Latina leadership representation across the United States.
