hosted by LaFe
New York City
by invitation only
All around us God is raising up Latino Leaders: leaders with character and integrity, leaders with a love for Jesus, leaders with the courage to start new things. Our campuses, our families and our communities are desperately in need of men and women who have been called by God to serve with humility and wisdom.
We believe that investing time and energy in you can make a difference in your life. We have a network of skilled trainers and mentors who want to help you connect with Jesus on your leadership journey and maximize your impact on your campus, in your family and in the world.
We believe that a week at the LATINO LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE can help to equip you for a lifetime of meaningful Christian leadership. We'll give you tools that you can use for the next 40 years. And we'll help you identify your next steps as a follower of Jesus, as a Latino Christian, and as a Christian leader on campus.
LaFe is the Latino Fellowship of InterVarsity/USA. For the last 75 years, InterVarsity/USA has been developing future leaders through our courageous proclamation of Jesus as Lord and Savior on campus, our deep discipleship around Scripture, and our love of all peoples and cultures. As a meaningful expression of our love of all people and cultures, in 1980 InterVarsity/USA founded LaFe as a means to support our Latino leaders and to increase our effectiveness in establishing and advancing ministries for Latinos on campuses across the United States.
