Latino Youth Leadership Alumni

Since its beginning, the primary goal of the Latino Youth Leadership Conference has been to increase the number of Hispanic students who attend college. The LYLC has advanced the important messages of staying in school, preventing violence, increasing community involvement through volunteerism, maintaining a healthy lifestyle free of alcohol and drugs, and developing leadership skills. Students who graduate from the LYLC are eligible to become members of the Latino Youth Leadership Alumni (LYLA) where students can stay connected throughout the year. The Alumni through community service repeatedly reminds its members of the importance of retaining the value of community while instilling in them the value of education. The goal is to move away from the myth that community and education are somehow separate. Throughout the year the Alumni reinforces the values and goals expressed in the LYLC. The powerful role the LYLC and Alumni play in their members lives has significantly influenced hundreds of Hispanic youth and served to produce countless responsible and productive members of our society.

Valley Center Opportunity Zone

The Valley Center Opportunity Zone (VCOZ) came into being as the result of a collaborative effort between the Hispanic and African-American Communities of Las Vegas. Representatives of the Latin and Urban Chambers got buy-in from Assemblymen Morse Arberry, Jr. and Mo Denis, along with State Senator Steven Horsford to seek funding for a proposal to provide grant assistance to small businesses located in the central area of Las Vegas during the 2005-2006 legislative session. VCOZ, a community development corporation, administers funds awarded by the State of Nevada to create economic impact, stimulate business activity and enhance visual appearances of business properties in a specific area of the Las Vegas Valley. Chief objective of the program is to assist businesses in blighted areas in downtown Las Vegas, areas east and north of the city, and within North Las Vegas. For more information call (702) 384-8269.

IMPACTO

IMPACTO is the Latin Chamber of Commerce’s Government Affairs Committee. The committee formed to work with the Chamber as a separate political action committee to represent the political needs of our community. The Government Affairs Committee was involved in all aspects of the 2008 Presidential election. IMPACTO continuously seeks involvement in shaping Nevada policy when it comes to taxes, affordable housing, immigration reform, healthcare reform and coming to a consensus on how to best prepare Nevada for the future.
