Latinx on the Rise Launches First Mentoring Cohort
On October 25, 2019 the NWA Hispanic Leadership Council launched its first mentoring cohort. The main goals of the program are to encourage college students to get involved in the community and to provide them opportunities to develop networking and leadership skills. Mentors will help students to connect with the area’s stakeholders, and to become familiar with key community organizations, resources and pressing issues.
