INLAND EMPIRE FUTURE LEADERS PROGRAM

Over the past thirty-eight years, the Inland Empire Future Leaders Program (IEFLP) has provided summer leadership development conferences for almost 4,500 Latino eighth- and ninth-grade students from throughout the Inland Empire. This year, our leadership conference will be in person! The five-day conference includes training in leadership, campaign processes, cultural awareness, college preparation, career choices, citizenship responsibilities, financial literacy, and public speaking. The sessions are dynamic, intensive and fun-filled, but more importantly, we encourage students to strive for academic excellence and to contribute to their schools and community through personal involvement.
A nominal $40 fee is requested per participant to help cover costs of the conference t-shirt, conference picture, and other items. (The fee is payable only after a student is accepted to participate.)
Four-year follow-up surveys have indicated that the leadership experience leaves a lasting impression and that it does indeed effectively and positively influence the students. The surveys also indicate a 99 percent high school graduation rate and a 90 percent college-going rate for students participating in the program.
The IEFLP Leadership Conference staff consists entirely of volunteers. All expenses to date have been paid through donations from individuals and organizations.
