KEEPING THE by liuhongmei


CHCI’s mission is to develop
  the next generation of
      Latino leaders.

By  2025      , half of
the new entrants into
 the U.S. workforce
  will be Latinos.

      CHCI is uniquely
   positioned to deliver
  talented and prepared
 Latinos to the workforce.


The American dream is a
promise made to every citizen
and each rising generation.
It’s a promise of freedom, of
opportunity for personal
fulfillment without bounds.
Today, Latinos comprise the
youngest and fastest growing
segment of the American
population. In 2010, a banner
year for the Congressional
Hispanic Caucus Institute, we
kept the promise—and the
dream—alive for the next
generation of Latino leaders.

  The dramatic Latino population growth over the
  past decade highlights the need for increasing
  education attainment and leadership training
  for Latino youth. The Hispanic population now
  totals 50.5 million, or 16.3 percent of the U.S.
  population. And the Hispanic youth population
  is growing at a much faster rate than other
  demographic groups except for Asians. Over
  the next decade, nearly 80 percent of jobs will
  require a post-secondary degree and, by 2025,
  one out of every two entrants into the U.S. labor
  force will be Hispanic.

  Latino education attainment and leadership training is critical for
