Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute

Global Leaders Program



  • The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute helped me develop professional skills that can't be learned in a classroom. Being able to have this experience is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. I currently work for Congressman Will Hurd (TX-23) as a District Representative. My experience with CHLI prepared me for this role and I am truly honored to be an alumna of such a wonderful organization.

  • CHLI changed the trajectory of my career. The program opened my eyes to the world of public service and international development. I also fell in love with DC and the community of leaders that work relentlessly to impact, influence, and improve the world in which we live in.

  • I gained applicable job skills that helped me land a full-time job on the hill. I am grateful to the CHLI Global Leaders Program and what it did to help me feel prepared for the next step in both my personal life and professional career.
