LATINO LEADERSHIP INITIATIVE
The Boston College School of Social Work’s Latino Leadership Initiative (LLI) is fast becoming the alternative approach to empower Latino communities in all of social work higher education. By fostering an environment where the traits of leadership, innovation, risk-taking, and sheer force of will can flourish, the LLI has created a unique counter-space where the Latino experience is not only heard, but also validated.
In 2017, the Boston College School of Social Work is launching a series of videos highlighting the impact of several of our school’s initiatives that innovatively redefine social work higher education, towards our end goal of effecting change in all corners of the globe. Each of these programs, from the Latino Leadership Initiative, to the Immigrant Integration Lab, to RISE3, carry the transdisciplinary, place-based focus that we bring with us in everything we do.
