This week, the Latino Leadership Institute accomplished another milestone by working in collaboration with various organizations that share one of our principles of empowering our youth. This past Wednesday, The Latino Leadership Institute, The National Hispanic Media Coalition, Viacom, and the United World Council at the United Nations gathered over 90 Latino High School students at the headquarters of Viacom to learn from their experts about what it is like to work in the different departments of a major media conglomerate such as Viacom. This interaction also helped them to consider potential internships at the company in the near future.
This event was possible due to the generosity Juan Herrera, vice-president of Global Relations at Viacom.
“We are very proud of the students who attend this event despite the intensely cold weather and after taking the state Regents exam earlier that afternoon. Their behavior, maturity, and intelligence was exhibited throughout the whole event, impressing all the presenters and adults in the room.”
