The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund extends an invitation for you to take part in our 2004 Leadership Programs by applying to the Shell Legislative Internship Program or the Ford Motor Company Fellows Program.
Since 1989 the NALEO Educational Fund, in partnership with Shell Oil Company and Ford Motor Company, has worked to provide Latino college students with hands-on legislative policy experience, in addition to leadership and
professional development training. To date, the programs have served over 200 college students from across the country and of various academic backgrounds.
In 2004 each program will select ten students to take part in the NALEO Educational Fund Leadership Programs. Program participants will travel to Washington, D.C. for a series of cultural, leadership and professional training workshops and will have the opportunity to meet with local elected
officials as well as advocates from community-based organizations.
Participants will then take part in the 21st Annual NALEO Conference; the largest gathering of Latino elected and appointed officials in the country; where they will have the opportunity to network with the nations top policy
makers and advocates.
Following the NALEO Conference, participants of the Ford Motor Company Fellows Program will begin a five week placement in the office of a Member of Congress or U.S. Federal Department; where they will have the opportunity
to gain a behind the scenes look at policy development.
Participants of the Shell Legislative Internship Program will have a behind the scenes look at federal policy, following the NALEO Conference. They will meet with advocates of leading national organizations, White House
officials and Congressional staffers. Upon the end of their second week in Washington, D.C., participants will return to their home state for a four-week placement in the office of an elected or appointed official.
