The Boston College School of Social Work’s Latino Leadership Initiative (LLI) is fast becoming the alternative approach to empower Latino communities in all of social work higher education. By fostering an environment where the traits of leadership, innovation, risk-taking, and sheer force of will can flourish, the LLI has created a unique counter-space where the Latino experience is not only heard, but also validated.
