¡LEAD! Latina/o Empowerment at De Anza

Mission Statement

¡LEAD! is committed to empowering emerging Latina/o leaders and their allies.

We believe that in order to serve as effective leaders in our communities, young Latina/os must be supported in their desire to becoming self-aware, self-determined, and self-defined.

We encourage innovation, embrace diversity, and value human dignity.


The goal of ¡LEAD! is to reinforce our understanding of Latina/o history, culture and politics through collaborative learning experiences. We strive to create a sense of familia among participants that generates loyalty, respect, a sense of equality, and a desire to create positive change in our communitie.

To fulfill our mission, ¡LEAD! fosters leadership development through hands-on training and year-round community engagement projects.
