Capitol Fellowship Program

Congratulations to the CLLARO Capitol Fellows 2017 Cohort!

Graduation day, May 13, 2017

The CLLARO Capitol Fellowship Program seeks to enhance promising Latino students’ leadership abilities, strengthen professional skills, and ultimately help mold the future of Latino public policy leaders in Colorado. CLLARO’s Capitol Fellowship Program Curriculum will help develop the fellow’s leadership abilities with monthly leadership training, as well as facilitating access to many of Colorado’s public policy leaders. This will give students an opportunity to see first-hand how policy is legislated and implemented in an effort to increase the number of Latinos engaged in the public policy process.

Sponsor a Capitol Fellow!


Your organization can be a part of this important program to support young, diverse leaders by becoming a sponsor of CLLARO’s Capitol Fellowship Program for the 2017 Legislative Session.
