ALPFA (Association of Latino Professionals for America) was the first national Latino profssional association in the United States, establishd in Los Angeles in 1972. Throughout our 44-year history, we have experienced steady growth and demonstrated consistent value. ALPFA continues to build upon its proud legacy with a mission: To empower and develop Latino men and women as leaders of character for the nation, in every sector of the global economy.
ALPFA currently serves more than 72,000 professional and student members across the country - a number we plan to grow aggrsively to 100,000 within the next two years. In addition to networking and professional leadership development opportunities, our members have access to 50,000 paid summer internships through hundreds of Fortune 1000 corporate partners. We aspire to be the business partner of choice for companies seeking to hire and develop Latino talent.
We also promote a culture of philanthropy throughout the Latino community, encouraging our members to volunteer with, and engage on behalf of, local charities. We actively seek hands-on leadership building experiences for our members and to engage that considerable talent to make a measurable impact for national charitable organizations.
