Pete Garcia Community Economic Development Fellowship

Established in 2010, the NALCAB Pete Garcia Community Economic Development Fellowship was created to address the growing leadership gap in nonprofit community development organizations serving US Latino communities. The program offers training for next-generation Latino leaders to build the practical, personal, and professional skills needed to succeed in the community economic development field, and helps practitioners become more effective leaders through leadership development, technical training, and the facilitation of peer networks.

To date, the Fellowship has graduated 169 Latino Leaders from across the country, representing 110 unique nonprofit organizations in 25 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.
