As of this week, peer mentor support will officially be added to CAPACES Leadership Institute's non-profit programming

On Saturday, Nov. 2, CAPACES Leadership Institute officially kicked off its Peer Mentor Program with an event that featured current and former elected officials.

"The Peer Mentor Program is an expansion of our People's Representatives Training Program," said CAPACES Director Jaime Arredondo.

The event took place at the CAPACES headquarters in Woodburn and aimed to connect mentors and mentees for the first time to launch a 24-month long culturally responsive professional development journey.

The purpose of the peer mentoring is to prepare more leaders of Hispanic heritage.

"Because, except for those employed within the non-profit or social service sector, Latino political leaders are virtually non-existent," Arredondo noted.
