Friends University HALO students selected to be interns at United States Hispanic Leadership Institute

A group of Friends University Hispanic American Leadership Organization (HALO) student delegates have been selected as volunteer interns at the 38th National United States Hispanic Leadership Institute (USHLI) Conference in Chicago from Feb. 20-23. The USHLI has become the premier Hispanic leadership conference in the nation and an award-winning non-profit organization.

The mission of the USHLI is to fulfill the promises and principles of democracy by promoting education, research, servant leadership development and civic engagement.

“We have worked hard and it is an honor to be able to attend this conference,” said Teresa Molina, professor of Spanish. “This is an amazing opportunity for our students to take on a major leadership responsibility at a national conference which aligns with the mission and values of Friends University.”

The HALO students will assist with the day to day operations of the USHLI conference while having the opportunity to interact with recruiters, national policy-makers and future employers. Many of the conference attendees are present or future leaders who will become the most influential Hispanic leaders of their generation.

Participants will hear from prominent speakers, attend workshops and develop and strengthen leadership skills to grow as servant leaders.
