Thank you to all our 2018 Capitol Fellowship Applicants!
A formal announcement of the 2018 Cohort of Capitol Fellows will be released Monday, December 11th.
In our current political environment at the national and local level, it’s exceptionally important for us to ensure that the next generation of diverse leaders is ready to engage and advocate for their communities. Each year, the Colorado Latino Leadership, Advocacy and Research Organization (CLLARO) gives a small group of Latino college students the opportunity to work in the Capitol with our state legislators as a fellow with a paid, part-time internship during the legislative session.
The Capitol Fellowship Program seeks to enhance promising Latino and other minority students’ leadership abilities, strengthen professional skills, and ultimately help mold the future of Latino public policy leaders in Colorado. Fellows will not only be given the chance to learn about the public policy process and how to be civically engaged, but for many of our alumni, this opportunity is a first step towards becoming a policy leader in their professional careers, where diversity is too often underrepresented.
The CLLARO Capitol Fellowship Program (CFP) seeks to expand the potential of emerging diverse leaders, strengthen their professional skills, and ultimately help mold the future public policy leaders in Colorado. CLLARO’s unique CFP curriculum develops the Fellow’s leadership abilities, understanding of the public policy process, and facilitates access to Colorado’s public policy leaders.
