Grassroots Leadership Development Program
About the Program
The Grassroots Leadership Development Program aims to promote and facilitate constructive dialogue and interaction between Hispanic citizens and public officials who are responsible for administering their local city, county, and school governments. Hispanic citizens will gain a better understanding of how local governments function and how they as citizens can play a more effective role in influencing and formulating public policy. Public officials will also gain a better understanding of the Hispanic community’s needs and concerns and a greater appreciation for our interest in government and public affairs. USHLI implements GLDP in interested cities and communities throughout the United States.
